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 $1,000 helped to buy tires and some tools for his workshop.

Mario's story

Mario is single and from the city of Santaní. He tells us that he has owned a tire repair shop for 13 years. His business is in a good location and he has an established customer base. He sells new and used tires.

Mario is a very hard-working and responsible man who always works as hard as he can in order to fill his customers' orders and ensure they leave his premises satisfied. He tells us that, thanks to his loans from Fundación Paraguaya, his business continues to grow and he is very grateful as a result.

Mario is requesting a new loan to invest in his business as he needs to buy tires and some tools for his workshop. In this way, he will be able to continue providing his customers with a good service.
