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 acquire the necessary items to set up his own business selling potable water.

Fernando's story

Fernando owns a motorcycle and he himself is the driver. He works as distributer of potable water and he feels very happy to have this job. He is 47 years old and he is the father of 3 children, all of whom are attending school. They are his reason to keep going. He wants to keep doing the same activity but he wants to run his own business. To set up he wishes to purchase empty containers and other necessary items. For this he is requesting a loan, so that he can achieve his goal. With your help, you will make the dreams of this hard working father possible.
