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).

Luis Alonso's story

Luis decided to request a new loan because his business needs to be reinforced. He needs to buy material for decorating social events such as parties, birthdays, weddings. With this loan he wants to get more plastic utensils, table cloths, decorations, artificial flowers, glasses and others to help him to do better work.

The results from the last loan that Luis received were positive, he bought a variety of products to decorate the events that his customers hire him for. He was successful and now wants to give his business more life. His family unit is stable. He believes that his financial position is better since he has had many contracts to fulfill.
