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).

Anonymous's story

The borrower is an enterprising man with desires to succeed and many possibilities of doing something great with his life. His greatest desire is to bring his family a better future and he is seeking new horizons, trying to forget the crime around them. His family strives every day and they are hard working. He is a tailor and makes various types of clothing. He has been in this business for several years and he feels proud because he has achieved good results. His sewing workshop is well-known and he already has many customers in a location that has been identified as good for his business. His goal is to have better benefits that will help him fulfill his dreams. He is convinced that if he increases production, sales will increase. For this reason, he is requesting a loan to purchase a variety of wholesale fabric, zippers, thread, buttons, etc. He is grateful for the collaboration that he will receive. In addition, he has faith that God will not abandon him, that he will not be influenced by bad company, and he will always be occupied with good works such as this so as to ensure the best for his family and be a good example for them.
