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).

Pablo Daniel's story

Pablo Daniel, 52, is in a common-law relationship and has two children. He lives with his children and wife in the city of Ventanas in Los Ríos Province. He's a member of 24 de Septiembre Communal Bank, located in the San Gabriel area of Ventanas Canton, where people make a living in agriculture and livestock.

Pablo Daniel makes a living in agriculture growing corn and rice, and he also raises chickens and pigs. He's requesting the loan to buy seeds, urea, Ranger and organic fertilizer, pigs, and "polvillo" [animal feed made from rice]. With the help of the loan he'll be able to buy the fertilizer he needs for planting.

His dream is to have a farm and expand his business. The challenges he faces are all the obstacles and improving himself thanks to the loan.

In his free time he likes to play pool and ball, and, at night, watch television.
