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 $1,200 helped to buy six calves.


Antonio's story

Antonio has a spouse and delights in his six-year-old son; he has no relatives abroad. He works as a cattle merchant, an activity he’s been in for five years. He started the business on his own initiative and to date has no problems; he works every day.

The loan he needs will make it possible for him to buy six calves to subsequently sell. This investment will help him strengthen the business and the profits will allow him to provide food for his family. His dream is to support his children’s schooling.
