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).

Julio Enrique's story

Julio is an older man who is single and hardworking. He began working as a mechanic at a garage 20 years ago. He finished his employment contract and decided to start his own machine shop for all kinds of vehicles. He has several employees and his greatest dream is to expand his business and purchase equipment and technology for Montallantas tires to expand into this tire service. The money will be invested in the team and also to purchase the right tools for this new service. His shop is reputable and increasing his services and generating more revenue for the workshop will significantly improve his quality of life.
