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).

Eliecer's story

Eliecer is originally from the town of Estelí in the Comarca San Nicolás. He is 25 years old, single, a university student, and works as a trader. He began offering his services to his customers in his community as a grinder. He says this work is familiar to him since his father taught it to him and it has come down from generation to generation. He started this work at 19 years old. This is his first business. He expects to expand the business, provide better service to his customers, and be able to satisfy his needs.

Eliecer is requesting this loan to purchase a motor and a seat. He believes this loan will help him serve more customers and provide better service to be able to earn more income.
