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 buy elegant clothes, shoes, and women's accessories.


Johnis's story

With his Kiva loan Johnis fulfilled his customers' requests for all lines of clothing and footwear. His buyers were very satisfied and they have requested elegant clothes, shoes, and women's accessories for the end-of-the-year family holidays so they can be well dressed and happily enjoy Christmas and New Year.

This is why Johnis is requesting another Kiva loan, because he doesn't have enough working capital to respond to the demand. He's asking his lenders to continue supporting small-business entrepreneurs in Colombia to help reduce the percentage of poverty and fulfill the dreams of a lot of people.
