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 $825 helped to buy rice seeds and fertilizers.

Marcial's story

Marcial is a farmer who has been raising crops for almost 20 years. Despite his farming experience, he aspires to better yields. He is married and has two children who are in high school. The inputs he needs to improve his crops are expensive, and he lacks funds. He is asking for a loan of PHP 35,000 to buy rice seeds and eight sacks of fertilizer for his farm.

Someday he would like to earn enough money to send his children to college while supporting the family's daily needs.
