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).

Mario Fidel's story

Fidel is a young person, calm and hardworking with the will to better himself in life. He manages his financial activities responsibly and has the technical capacity to administer his sources of work where he generates income. He works in a repair shop with his brothers, which is located in the same town of Tiraque in the Cochabamba department.

His civil status is single without economic dependents. He doesn't have his own home, he lives in his father's house with his brothers.

Currently he sees the need to request a loan to buy tools and improve his mechanical repair shop and thus he will be able to increase his income and improve his quality of life.
