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 $925 helped to buy calved cows.


Leoncio's story

Leoncio lives in Triunfo #2 region. He works on his production unit doing farm work. His main crops are root vegetables and tubers. He also manages his livestock inventory which serves as his main, and best, source of income for the working and financial stability of his immediate family. His family is made up of his wife and three children who help work on the farm.

Leoncio needs this loan to buy two calved cows to increase his livestock inventory and his milk production which will enable him to improve his family's quality of life. He hopes to receive a Kiva loan so that he can achieve this.

Leoncio's biggest dream is to make progress and provide his family with the best.
