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).

Edix's story

Edix is a simple, honest, and very hardworking person. He's 43 and comes from a humble family from the city of La Paz in Yungas Province. When he was very young he started working a variety of jobs because his family had little financial means. Edix got himself through middle school and now has a small house which he graciously shares with his sister, who says she really appreciates his support. Currently, Edix earns his living transporting passengers around the city of Quillacollo. His good service and treatment of clients has won him respect and confidence in his area. Edix is seeking a loan for repairs and maintenance to his car so he can improve service.
