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).

Juan Manuel's story

A member of the “Amauta” communal bank, he’s a tourism guide by profession. He’s been working for a state firm for the last few months. For the moment, he’s left guiding aside but does not discard the possibility of restarting his vocation in the future. He works Monday through Friday during the day. He’s a responsible person who very much wants to continue working for his family. He wants to continue working in order to support his family economically.

He’s requesting the loan to buy basic staple items like rice, sugar and some personal use items. He is grateful for the opportunity provided through this means and commits to make his payments as scheduled.
