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).

Juan Arbysio's story

Juan is a man who is well known for having operated his business for a while, as his business is the bakery. He has twelve years of experience in this work. He is married, and he and his wife have been developing their small business together, making various types of bread.

Juan came to CEPRODEL's office to ask for financing, which will be used for the purchase of raw material for making bread, such as flour, butter, sugar and yeast. What he sells helps them to stay in the market, as they are established, and likewise helps them increase their sales and income in order to survive.
