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 $1,200 helped to pay labor costs and buy inputs needed for farming.

Dante's story

Dante wants to see his children become professionals someday. He patiently works in his farm to provide his family with the necessities.

Dante, 54, is married and has four children. He has already been managing his rice farming business for 25 years and he will not get tired of doing this since it is his primary source of income. He wishes to continue operating the business until his children finish their education.

Dante believes that he will reach his wish by continuing to work hard. He is requesting a loan of 50,000 PHP to pay for the labor costs in farming and to buy the necessary farm inputs. Someday, Dante will attain his wish through the help of his loan.
