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 $550 helped to purchase agricultural supplies.

Luis Alberto's story

This is the story of a likable man with a big heart, who spreads his positive attitude and infectious good vibes to the people around him. In spite of never having gone to school, he's very knowledgeable in the field of agriculture. He has a small crop of potatoes and carrots that he wants to boost with soil maintenance products and fertiliizers. That's why he's requesting a loan to purchase these products so he can have better managed, higher quality crops. His biggest dream is to have a great crop and create jobs.
