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 $1,275 helped to buy farm supplies, to do the weeding, to prepare the soil and to pick coffee.

Mardoqueo's story

Mardoqueo, 63, is married living with his wife and daughter in the municipality of Nueva Frontera, Santa Bárbara. He’s been working in agriculture for about 25 years growing coffee, corn and beans. He sells his crops in the local market. The loan he’s asking ODEF for is his second one and is for 25,000 Lempiras he’ll use to buy fertilizer, to pay for the weeding and soil preparation and to pay to harvesting the crops. He hopes this maintenance will lead to good crop yields. His family goal is to build his daughter a house and to buy a vehicle he can use for transportation to the farm.
