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 $675 helped to buy solar-powered system for powering his house.

Bonerge's story

Bonerge has lived in the rural town of San Remigio for about 8 years. He lives with his wife and 19-year old son. He says that he had to start working at a very young age just to survive and has always had to work hard. He now makes a living partly from work at a local trucking company and partly from farming with his son. He wants electricity but there's not much chance of getting it from conventional sources and he's applying for this loan so that he can buy a solar-powered system that will generate enough electricity to power his house.
