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).

Hugo's story

Hugo Alberto M. is 56 years old. All his life he has been a medical salesman, but as he gets older it is difficult to continue. For this reason, a year and a half ago, he decided to become a micro-entrepreneur. Selling footwear has gone well, which has raised his credit limit. His work is flourishing as he travels to businesses and offices in the metropolitan area. Now he needs credit support, which he will use for his business to purchase women's and menss shoes.
