Help us reach $600,000 by December 31!

Dear Kiva Lender,

Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers every week, but since Kiva doesn't take a fee on your loans we rely on donations from lenders like you to keep doing this important work. If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $20 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31! Your support helps us make a global impact.

In appreciation, Chelsa Bocci, Sr. Director, Community

With these improvements to her crop, she expects to increase her income a bit and improve her family’s living conditions. She will also accomplish some goals. This will be her first loan through FUDECOSUR. She has not had previous loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has granted a loan easily and at a much lower interest rate.
