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 $500 helped to buy cement and sand to lay down a cement floor.

Alexander's story

Alexander is 36 years old. He lives with his wife and their son who is already an adult, in the house that he owns.

He earns his income primarily from selling vegetables (carrots, squash, onions, tomatoes, potatoes, etc.) to many customers in the region.

His desire is to give his family better housing conditions. In order to do so, he has requested a loan from FUSAI to buy cement and sand to lay down a cement floor. His home currently has an earthen floor, and he wants to provide his family with more hygienic conditions.

He hopes to have the support to be able to improve the floor as soon as possible.
