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 $1,250 helped to buy flour, salt, yeast, butter, and other ingredients for baking.

Fermin's story

Fermin is single and still lives with his parents. He has a bakery where he works alongside his parents. He says he used to work at another bakery where he learned the trade, and saved up some money to buy the first of his baking equipment.

The work that this family is doing is allowing them to purchase more equipment in order to increase production and give their customers better quality.

Fermin is requesting this loan to buy ingredients for his baked goods, such as flour, salt, yeast, butter, and other products. This will allow him to keep making quality baked goods.
