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 $1,025 helped to care for his coffee beans.

Wilfrido's story

Wilfrido is 45 years old, married and lives with his 4 children and his wife who are his main priority. With the loan he intends to buy supplies to care for his coffee plantation. His coffee crop is already established and what he wants to do is to provide good care so that he will obtain a better yield this year. What he will do specifically is to buy fertilizer and other necessary materials to improve the quality of his coffee beans. He hopes with this loan to earn the income needed to get ahead and provide his family with a better quality of life in the future. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has had no other prior loans from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has more easily extended credit and at a much lower rate of interest.
