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.

Jose Amilcar's story

José makes a living in agriculture, he lives with his wife and two children; Only his children depend economically on his income.

He started in this activity with his parents' support when he was still young and lived with them, today he does it to support his homestead. He doesn't have an established schedule to do his work.

He requests a loan to facilitate himself the supplies necessary to start the sowing of the season. with the loan he wants to buy fertiliser, insecticides and pesticides; This buy will allow him to get what he needs. with the funds of his loan he will be able to apply them to his crops to have a plague free harvest.

The aspiration of José in his agricultural job is to have good harvest and thus give his children the best and live in a more stable condition with his family.
