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).

Alexander Eduardo's story

Alexander is a young man who is very keen to get on in life. He works in his city as an employee in a gas station, which allows him to cover the cost of his studies. Alexander is studying accounting at the university of his city and is already in his last cycle. It has been a little difficult for him to work and study at the same time, but his desire to be better each day is enough to overcome any adversity.

Alexander is grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help that they have provided, he has been able to cover the costs to pay for his high school degree and the paperwork for his professional title. In this way, he can get a better job and his employment opportunities will be greater. In addition, he can continue to fight for his ultimate dream: "to have his own business".
