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 $400 helped a member to buy gasoline to sell.

Juvenil Group's story

The communal bank Juvenil (Youthful) comprises five young people who got together to start working and progressing to help their families. They want to be great one day, and they are striving to this end.

Luciano, 19, is one of the members. He is a farmer, and now he wants to sell gasoline for extra income so that he can help his family. He works hard and wants to succeed. He will use the loan to buy gasoline to sell for a small profit. The young people and their parents and supporters appear in the photo.

In this group: Luciano, Ada, Luisa, Amado, Javier
