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).

He is a bricklayer and works independently, but also works in farming and with livestock in his spare time. It has been several years that he has worked with livestock and farming and he has been doing very well thanks to the effort that he puts into his work. On this occasion, Samuel needs a loan for personal use: to feed and educate his children. He belongs to Communal Bank “Huchuy Qosqo” of Asociación Arariwa in the city of Cusco.
