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 $1,575 helped to buy licenses and join a cooperative.

Luis Olivo's story

Luis, 55, is married and has three children. Some time ago, he bought a cart, but because he couldn't find steady work, he converted his car into a taxi that has been his source of income. He says this income allows him to support his family. He will use the loan to buy licenses and join a cooperative.
