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).

Pedro Daniel's story

Pedro is 21 years old, and in order to get ahead, he works as a machine operator for a small company from his city. This is how he supports his family, especially his son, who is 7 months old. Pedro believes that he does well in his job because he is responsible.

Pedro appreciates the help that Kiva lenders have given him. He will buy construction materials to make some home improvements and improve his family’s quality of life. He will continue fighting to make his dream come true: “To own a store and see his son become a professional.”
