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 $375 helped to buy Blu ray.

Juan Jose's story

Juan is an enterprising young man. He is 20 years old, single, and lives in Pachacamac with his family. He is a person with a great desire to get ahead. He has worked for a restaurant delivering food for almost two years. It is going very well for him given that he is very responsible, hard-working, honest, and very kind to his customers. He also sells dvd’s. He is a very innovative and enterprising young man.

His family is his greatest motivation for getting ahead. It is for them that, at such a young age, he puts forth a lot of effort in order to be able to support them in everything that he can.

Juan is grateful to the Kiva lenders because with the support they have given him he will be able to buy a Blu ray for his house. This way he will be improving his family’s quality of life. He will continue putting forth great effort in order to be able to have his own business.
