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 $1,300 helped to buy meat and vegetables.

Jose's story

Jose is a businessman from the city of Hato Mayor, an agricultural city surrounded by valleys and mountains. He makes his home in a simple structure with his long-term partner and their four children. This entrepreneurial man is dedicated to selling meat and vegetables. He has been running his butcher shop since the first loan he took out from Esperanza Internacional, almost eight years ago. He plans to use this loan to purchase pork, beef and different types of vegetables.

Jose is excited to be taking out this loan from Esperanza after successfully repaying his previous loans and growing his business. All through the years since starting his business, his life and the lives of his family members have experienced change. He will use his profits to support his family and to improve his business.

Jose thanks you all for your support.
