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 $1,575 helped to buy domestic electric appliances at wholesale (fans, irons, sandwich grills, etc.).

Luis Miguel's story

Luis is a man dedicated to selling domestic electric appliances in different towns in the region where his mother and daughter live. His workday begins very early in the morning when he leaves to the different towns where he has his customers. He is a man who is thriving, active, hard-working and dedicated to his family and his work. Therefore he is motivated to seek loan support as he wishes to invest in buying domestic electric appliances at wholesale (fans, irons, sandwich grills, and others) and with this he will be able to increase his inventory in order to offer more variety and meet his customers' needs, thereby he will increase his sales and from the income he receives from the sales he will continue taking care of his family's well-being. Luis wishes to generate more income that will enable him to have a favorable economic stability in order to provide his daughter and mother better living conditions and better quality of life.
