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 $450 helped to repair a motor, buy some bands and some disks for the mill.

Willian Omar's story

Willian, 39, is married and has two children. He has worked providing milling services for 25 years; he learned this occupation from his father. He also works building metal structures which he also learned from his father. His two children are attending elementary school. Willian rises at 5am to start tending to his customers; he uses that time to sharpen the mill’s disks to provide better service.

The loan he’s asking Fundación Campo for is to repair a motor, buy some bands and some disks for the mill. He needs to repair the motor and buy these supplies because it’s his source of family support. He owns two motors and when one breaks down he has the other one ready so he always needs to have the other one ready in order to work uninterruptedly. His dream is to see his children graduate from university and this is why he strives daily.
