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 $700 helped to repair his vehicle's motor.

Narciso's story

Narciso is a 64 year old widower, and he has one son. He has been farming since he was 18 years old. He says that he has 46 years of experience in farming. For the last ten years he has been providing transportation services with his own vehicle. He uses his vehicle to transport people to different places.

The loan that he is requesting is to repair his vehicle’s motor. Due to the daily work that he does with his vehicle, it has started to have problems, which make it impossible to complete his daily work. Narciso will improve his source of income, and he will give his customers a better quality of service.

When he has completed repayment of the loan, he plans to negotiate another in order to buy a more modern vehicle. He will do this in order to continue providing transportation service.
