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 Alberto's story

Luis is continuing with his business making and selling bread. Conversing with us, he said that things went very well with his last loan, because he was able to buy supplies and increase his production. At this time, he is requesting a loan to buy flour, butter, and other supplies to make bread, because his customer base has been expanding.
