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 $500 helped to buy parts for and maintain his vehicle.

Julio Adalberto's story

Don Julio, 47 years old, is a hardworking man who lives with his life partner. He uses his pickup truck to run an express transport service. He has been doing this work for 12 years, and it has allowed him to cover some of his household expenses. Julio is requesting a loan from INTEGRAL that he will invest in purchasing parts for and maintaining his vehicle, since he does not earn enough to cover those costs. That will allow him to keep working, since his vehicle is his only source of income and gives him and his wife greater economic stability.
