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 Joaquin's story

Jairo Joaquín, 34, has worked for a year and has demonstrated responsibility and honesty. His wife who is a dentist and a teacher also helps support the family which is very hardworking; they are a very united family.

He’s worked with Afodenic financing and he’s very grateful for it. He’s asking for a new Kiva loan to replace his kitchen’s metal roof since winter has arrived and it’s in bad shape and needs new metal sheeting so that the inside of his home can stay dry and he can thus provide better conditions. He intends to open a business of his own, that the family stays together and to enjoy employment stability.
