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).

Jose Neftali's story

José is an enterprising, honest person. He lives in his own home with his life partner and their two children, who are currently studying. For several years, he has been in the business of selling sweet bread and French bread, and he also owns a mill. With what he earns from his business, he is able to meet his household expenses. José is requesting this loan to purchase tools for his mill such as blades, disks, belts, and so forth. This will help him improve his mill, continue with his business, and provide his family with a better quality of life.
