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).

Anonymous's story

This borrower is 20 years old and lives in his own home along with his wife and child. He grows corn and beans. When his crops are ready to be harvested, the output is stored in granaries (like the one shown in the photo) before being sold at different markets near his home. With the profit he earns, the borrower is able to pay for some of his household expenses.

He is requesting a loan in order to buy compost, fertilizers, pest controls, herbicide, and other supplies so that he can continue growing his crops and have a better quality of life.
