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 $1,500 helped to buy building materials to complete his residential house.

Nathan's story

Nathan is an adult male. He is married to Mary, with whom he has five children. All of them are in school. Nathan also lives with his 90-year-old father and takes care of his father's medical bills because of his advanced age. Nathan works on his sugarcane plantation for at least eight hours a day for six days each week. He rears pigs and goats to supplement his income. Nathan will use these means to earn the money to pay back the loan which he is acquiring to buy building materials to complete his residential house in the countryside. He is excited that he and his children will finally have a decent house to live in. The house they are living in now is quite small, and they have to share it with his father which has been quite a challenge. Nathan is hard-working. He devotes his time to several economic activities so he is sure that he will do a fine job paying back the loan.
