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).

Fernando's story

Fernando belongs to the communal bank "Puntualito" in the city of Cusco in Peru. He is very hardworking and enterprising. He is continuing in his business leading adventure tours. He is currently seeking a loan so that he can buy sleeping bags, portable stoves, and other camping equipment to upgrade his inventory.

He is very grateful to KIVA for helping him to support himself and develop his business, which is his family's principal source of income.
