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 $1,450 helped to plant pineapple.


Federico's story

Our client Federico is a very responsible person. He is known in his union for being dedicated to his family and to his work in the Chaco. He gets up very early every morning to start his daily work. He is a farmer and has an hectare of yuca that yields 350 quintals annually. He also has two plots of three hectares of rice that yield 90 quintals annually. This business allows him to support his family and provide for them. He used to grow pineapple, but because of weather conditions he lost his whole plantation. That is why he is currently requesting a loan, so that he can plant pineapple again and work hard to improve his income and, accordingly, his and his family's quality of life. He found out about the good terms our institution offers borrowers through a comment made by one of the neighbors of his union.
