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 $2,700 helped to buy a new printer (Xerox) and create a website.

Jesus's story

When Jesus and his family moved from Colombia to the United States, a small print shop in Miami provided employment for him, his wife and children. When the owners decided to sell the business, Jesus used all his savings to purchase the print shop that provided his family's livelihood. His shop, Centro de Artes Graficas & Mysticas, does all types of printing -- banners, business cards, flyers, religious booklets/pamphlets and promotional materials.

Now that he is the owner, Jesus has decided to upgrade the business to provide better services and attract new customers. With this loan, Jesus will purchase a new printer and create a website for the business. Help Jesus grow his business and provide a better life for his family.
