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 $1,025 helped buy manure and inputs to improve his coffee crop.

Orlando's story

Orlando is 56 years old, married, and lives with his wife and son, who are his major priority. With this loan he intends to buy supplies for his coffee grove. Specifically, he plans to buy manure and products to apply to the trees to improve the quality of his harvest. Orlando has had an established field for many years now with a plantation in good condition, and he wants to help it improve in order to achieve better results.

With this loan Orlando hopes to realize the economic gains necessary to continue advancing his coffee project and generate added income for his family's wellbeing.

This is Orlando's first loan acquired through FUDECOSUR. He has had no other loans from state banks, and FUDECOSUR has offered the loan with major facilities and the rate of interest is much lower.
