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).

Amadeu's story

A married father of 2 children who attend school, Amadeu lives in his own home and does not support anyone else.
He works as a carpenter for a company. He intends to use the loan to buy a legally recognized plot of land to build a home. In the future, he wants to build a better home to make his family comfortable and start a business, for this he is committed to repay the Hluvuku loan. His goal is to work more and to have a carpentry workshop in his home to earn more income.
