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 $1,450 helped to repair his home.


Martin Daniel's story

Daniel is a hard-working and responsible person. He studied through high school, but was unable to continue with his higher education due to economic problems. He had to look for work from the time he was very young. This is why today he has worked in Products Dispatch for over a year for a well-known company. In his free time, he also works transporting passengers, trying to put forth the effort to realize his dream of having his own house and starting a family in the future. Daniel is applying for this loan to repair the roof of his home, which is being affected by the rainy season, and it is uncomfortable. This house belongs to his mother, with whom he lives in Barrio San Jorge I.
