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 $300 helped to buy fertilizers, seeds and other farm inputs.


Marianita's story

Marianita is 58 years old and is a married woman with seven children. She and her husband are both farmers. They own and till a plot of land in Banga, South Cotabato where they also live. Rice is the main crop that they grow at their farm.

Marianita applied for a loan because as she said, they need additional farm inputs but they don’t have the capability to buy what they need. She plans to use her loan to buy fertilizers, seeds and other farm inputs.

In the future, Marianita hopes to build a better house for her family.
