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).

Nelson Enrique's story

36-year-old Nelson lives in his own home and has three children. For eleven years he has been running a store and bakery which enables him to cover his family's expenses. He and his wife started the business together and they both work in it from Monday through Saturday.

Nelson is requesting a loan to buy basic household products such as rice, oil, soap, detergents and other goods so that he can offer his customers what they need. His goals are to strengthen his business, increase his number of customers, improve his financial situation and provide his family with everything they need.
