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 $250 helped purchase merchandise, blouses, skirts, and hammocks.

Hector Damian's story

Hector, who lives with his mother and is an only child, helps his mother with the household expenses. He sells clothes and hammocks. His plan for the business is to create a source of work and income. He works from 6 am to 6 pm.

Hector wants to invest (this loan) in the purchase of merchandise, blouses, skirts, and hammocks so he is requesting a loan that will allow him to improve his business, acquiring more merchandise.

His goal is to, through working, create better living conditions in his home.
