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 $425 helped to buy pigs to fatten.

Sandra's story

Sandra M. M. is 24 years old, married, and lives with her husband and two children who are her main priorities. She plans to use her loan to buy some pigs to raise, fatten and then sell. She already has the facilities and the pig pens. She also has the experience she needs to carry out the project. She will carry out the project together with her husband.

Sandra plans to make income for her family so that they can enjoy a better quality of life. She is thinking of her children's future and, for this reason, she would like to grow her business so that, in the future, she can provide her children with an education and see them become professionals in a specific field.

This is Sandra's first loan from FUDECOSUR. She hasn't had any previous loans from state banks but FUDECOSUR have offered her this loan with better repayment terms and much lower interest rates.
