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).

Renato's story

Renato, 38 years of age, is married and blessed with six children. He has a rice farm, which he has owned for almost 17 years. Last cropping, his net income was 30,000 PHP. He's asking for a loan of 25,000 PHP to purchase additional fertilizers. Future loans from Kiva would be invaluable to Renato who sees the loans as the only opportunity for progression of his agricultural business and financial security.
