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).

Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos, a young man, works for a private company. His biggest dream is to have his own house and improve his family’s living conditions. It is difficult for him to collect all the money he needs, because he has to pay for the home’s expenses.

This is why he is requesting a loan to buy everything he needs to continue building his house, such as doors, cement and sand. He appreciates the help that AFODENIC and Kiva give him.
