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 $700 helped to buy fruit at wholesale.


Felix's story

Félix, 36, lives with his wife and three children in his own house. He sells ‘jocotes’ [tropical fruit] from place to place in markets near his place of residence. He has many customers because he sells his product at a good price and he’s very kind and attentive to his customers. Félix is asking for a loan to buy jocotes at wholesale to continue with his business to be able to give his family a better life.
