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 $1,500 helped to buy cement, sand, and plaster to renovate the bathroom.


Luis's story

Luis is single and has a school-age child. He lives in three small rooms in his parents' house, located in the Pampahasi area of the city of La Paz.

Currently he works as an employee in a private company for more than eight hours a day because he has to cover his family's expenses for food, education, and services.

He needs the loan to buy materials such as cement, sand, and plaster to renovate the bathroom of his house because he wants to have greater comfort and improve his quality of life.

This is the second time he has worked with IMPRO and the first with Kiva.
