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).

Benito's story

Benito is married with grown children and has a small food and grocery store. He has a good customer base so he wants to continue working. This is why he wants to stock his business even more and that way provide better service to his customers. He is asking for the loan to buy meats, eggs, oils, rice, and drinks like soft drinks and beers.
