Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $1,075 helped to buy a motorcycle.

Rene Fernando's story

René is a 28-year-old man who has a great desire to boost his building business over the next few years.

René started working when his parents sent him out to work to provide food for the family. He works alone every day, from 7.00am to 5.00pm. He does not experience any difficulties. René is married and his wife takes care of their home. They have one child who is 2 years old.

René's dream is to work hard so that he can own his own home. He would also like to continue working with D-MIRO. He would like a loan to buy a motorcycle so that he can travel to his customers.
