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 $1,500 helped to fix up his shed and buy 200 guinea pigs.

Claudio Edgar's story

The member belongs to the communal bank "SIEMPRE JUNTOS", which is located in the district of Huanchac, province and department of Cusco.

His name is Claudio, he is 39, single and has a son. He raises guinea pigs for a living in a special shed he has for this purpose, and has learned all about the care, feeding, reproduction, and gestation of these animals. He is now expanding the shed little by little and plans to use the loan to buy 200 guinea pigs for the business.

The member is grateful for this loan opportunity which will allow him to invest in his business and grow economically.
