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 $525 helped to buy a small tank to carry drinking water.

Gustavo Adolfo's story

Gustavo Adolfo, 27, lives with his wife and three dependent children in their own house. For six years, he has been in the business of selling construction materials.

Gustavo has a dump truck and transports sand, rocks, earth, and gravel. His customers are friends who work in construction or are contractors. He gets up very early in the moring to do his job since he is paid depending on the number of trips he makes.

Gustavo is requesting a loan to buy a small tank to carry drinking water to sell it in places where there is no drinking water. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy the tank and earn extra income.

His goal is to buy a new truck some day so he can earn more income and give his family better living conditions.
