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).

Jairo Armando's story

Señor Jairo is a very enterprising man living in Libertad, a neighborhood in the city of Choluteca. He lives with his two children and his wife, who is also a merchant and helps him in his business. Jairo is a hard-working man and is fully dedicated to his general grocery store, which he has been running for three years. He will use this loan to buy corn, beans, meat, sugar, rice, drinks and sausages on the whole to sell in his store.

He is very honest and responsible in all his dealings. He works hard to expand his business with each passing day and thus have a better life.
