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 $875 helped to fix his vehicle's engine.

Jhonny Luis's story

Jhonny has been driving a public transportation vehicle for seven years. He is married and has one daughter for whom he needs to provide. Currently, his vehicle's engine is being repaired and it's his only working tool. If his vehicle cannot be repaired he would not be able to earn any income. He then needs to fix it, go back to generating an income and save so he can buy a piece of land to live with his family, as they are not in a very comfortable situation. His daughter in particular, started attending school and needs some space for doing homework, which would include space for him and his wife as they both help her.
