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).

Oscar Jean Pierre's story

Oscar, 20, is a young man who has worked hard to launch his stationery business; and with the profits earned he is able to help his parents with some of the household expenses and pay for his education costs. He is currently studying to be a nursing technician.

Oscar is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their support he can buy a photocopy machine for his small business to increase his income and continue toward his goal: "To finish his degree".
