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 $1,000 helped to buy fertilizer and agricultural supplies for growing coffee.

Leli's story

Leli is 43, married, and has three children who are her greatest priority. She lives with her husband and a daughter, as the other two are adults. She wants to buy fertilizer and agricultural supplies to help her coffee plantation, which is her source of income. She works with her husband in this business.

She has been working on her small farm for several years, and wants to expand. This is the first loan she has received from Fudecosur, as they offered her the loan on better terms, and at a much lower interest rate. In addition, she wishes to offer her daughter the schooling she needs, so that someday she will be an educated person, and can face up to life more easily.
