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).

Gs Nueva Jutiapa Group's story

Juan is a very hard-working person. He has been selling groceries for four years. He sells at his house, which is on a main street in his community. Juan’s business is located in a very busy area, which is a great advantage. He also repairs motorcycles and rents two rooms.

Juan has managed to support his family through his business activities. He is an exemplary person in his community, and he is very dear to his customers because of the way he tends to them. He is very kind and courteous.

Juan is requesting the loan to buy bread, milk, beans, rice, sugar, coffee, eggs, water, and soft drinks, etc. He dreams of having a well-stocked grocery store. Juan, the same has his companion in the group, hopes that this investment will allow him to improve his income and to improve, a bit, his quality of life and that of his family.

Jorge has had his grocery store business for over three years.
