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).

Jose De Jesus's story

José has been working in his business providing taxi service for the last five years. He’s located in a very good spot because he’s assigned to a taxi stand at one of the city’s malls. He also has many customers that call him for service and prefer him for his good customer service.

José is requesting a loan for 15,000 Lempiras to repair and service on of his vehicles that’s been giving him a few problems and he wants it to be in optimum condition. José hopes his business will become a stable business so he can continue working to help his family.
