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 $825 helped to buy a lift platform for the repair of motorcycles.

John Fredy's story

John is 34 years old. He is an automotive engineer, and five years ago he decided to establish his own workshop dedicated to motorcycle maintenance and repair. John thanks God for this opportunity that has allowed him to become a microentrepreneur and generate the necessary income to sustain his family and educate his 5 year old child.

Today he is asking for this loan which he will invest in the acquisition of a lift platform for the repair of motorcycles, permitting him to guarantee better quality work and to continue improving the quality of life in his home.
