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 wheat, barley and broad beans.


Justo's story

This member continues working in his business buying and selling grains such as wheat, broad beans and barley. He makes his sales in the different street markets in Cusco. He also has a car which he uses to provide a taxi service. Through these two small businesses, he provides for his children. The member's dream is to have business premises from which he can sell his grains. He would also like to improve his taxi business. He is requesting this loan to buy wheat, barley and broad beans.

The member is happy to be receiving the loan and pledges to make his repayments on time.
