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).

Los Del Huaycho Group's story

The “Los del Huaycho” communal bank is comprised of nine members, six ladies and three gentlemen. Freddy, the bank’s president, is 32 years old and has two children. He is engaged in a passenger transport service. He is a former client of the institution and he always took out previous loans to improve his vehicle. Freddy is going to use this vehicle to purchase tires for his vehicle. Freddy is a person that wants to succeed. He feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support they provide because it is the only activity that allows him to support himself and his family. In addition, he feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support given to him and his fellow group members.
