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 $350 helped to buy liquor and stock his business with drinks, which have sold out.

Dario De Jesus's story

Dario worked for a long time as a farmer, however due to health problems stemming from this work, he was obligated to leave it aside. Nevertheless, given the need to generate an income to support his home, where he lives with his wife and three children, he decided to start a store where he sells liquor to his customers. Thanks to this business he has continued generating earnings to support his family without affecting his health. Although when he started his business, he did so with very little capital, Dario has been working very hard to move his business forward and this has allowed the quality of life in his home to improve more and more. Looking to overcome the problem of lack of capital, Dario is requesting a loan to purchase liquor and stock his business with inventory which has been sold out.

His dream is to continue with this business as long as his health permits and thanks to this he will be able to move his three children forward by providing them with a good quality education.
