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).

Teofilo's story

Teofilo is married and has two children. He lives in La Paz in a brick and cement house for which he pays a kind of rent. The bathroom isn't working properly because of an incorrect installation. Teofilo works as a public servant and is seeking a loan to fix the bathroom problem. He is the sole income earner in the family so he needs this assistance
