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 $600 helped to buy a cow and cattle feed.


Baltazar De Jesus's story

Baltazar needs to take a new loan that will help him to further invest in his business. This loan will allow him to buy a cow and cattle feed.

The previous loan helped him to increase his income and his stock. There have been changes in his family circumstances. His wife passed away a month ago and his financial situation has become difficult because of the spending he has carried out.
