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 $500 helped to buy cosmetics.

Salvador Manuel's story

Salvador sells cosmetics and household products. He’s a man of his home. He’s single and has no children. He lives with his family. He learned the business on his own initiative and has been in it for a year. His business difficulty is when his products are late in arriving.

He’s requesting a loan to buy creams, lotions, shampoo, cosmetics and disinfectants. With this purchase he will be improving the business obtaining products in highest demand to meet customer needs generating more sales and household income.

His goal is to increase his products adding more diversity to the business in order to reach other zones; he’d also like to have a permanent locale in the future.
