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 $1,000 helped to pay for maintenance expenses for his taxi.


Wilmer's story

Wilmer is single and has no children. He lives in his grandparents' house in a small room with adobe walls and a dirt floor. The house is located in the the Pampahasi area of the city of La Paz.

Currently he works more than 10 hours as a driver, and sometimes until late at night because it's the only thing to cover his expenses for food and basic services.

He needs the loan for maintenance expenses for his vehicle because it's his only source of income to support himself.

Wilmer's dream is to improve his income and be able to work on his own to improve his quality of life.

This is his first time requesting a loan from IMPRO and also with Kiva.
