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).

Juan Jose's story

Juan needs a new loan to make some improvements in his business. This new investment will help him to purchase metal sheeting, paint, nails, poles and other items.
The previous loan was a big help to Juan. He was able to build the hallway for his house, and now he wants to make other improvements. His family's circumstances have been stable and their income has improved. Juan's wishes are to have his own business, to enlarge his home and to help his children to get ahead.
