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 $600 helped to make some improvements to his house.

Eloy's story

Eloy lives in his parent's house. He works as a graphic designer for a printer. His house is located in the Tembladerani neighborhood of the city of La Paz.

Eloy earns only his salary from his job. He works more than 8 hours a day. He will use this loan to do some finishing work on his house, specifically, to put in doors and windows and to fix the floor which is currently made of dirt. This way, he will have a nice environment in his home for Christmas.

Eloy's dream is to have his own printing press, so that in the future he could generate more income and improve his quality of life.
