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 $1,725 helped to buy a vehicle.


Martin's story

Martin is an entrepreneur from the community of El Sauce. He wants to obtain a loan for 850,000 colones to buy a vehicle to be able to transport his harvest, and seeds to his place of work in order not to have to contract people to do this work.

The purchase of this vehicle will allow him to have better income and reduce the cost of his production, and thus give his family a better quality of life.
