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 $1,750 helped to buy liquor with a part of the loan, and with the rest support his daughter's education.


Diro Enrique's story

Diro says that the loans facilitate progress for small businesspeople, provide incentives for microenterprises and allow businesses to progress with the capital. For this reason he is grateful for his Kiva loan, because with his previous investment he bought provisions and improved his rented premises, and this made him very happy. He is now applying for a new Kiva loan with which he will buy liquor with one part, and spend the rest on his daughter's education. Thus he is preparing for the December holidays, when he hopes to have his best sales of the year and with this support the education of his daughter, whom he hopes to see become a successful person in future.
