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 $825 helped to purchase leather.

Víctor Manuel's story

Señor Víctor Manuel has owned a traditional tannery for 38 years. The business provides for his family and he works in his shop from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. tanning leather by hand.

The funds from this loan are for the purchase of leather for processing. Víctor Manuel is grateful for the loans he's received from Ceprodel. These loans have increased his working capital and allowed him to purchase more goods at lower prices, paying cash instead of buying on credit. Ceprodel loans have thus improved Victor Manuel's quality of life.
