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 $225 helped to rent two manzanas (about 3.5 acres) of land.


Jose Alfredo's story

José decided to seek a new loan because he needs to rent two manzanas (about 3.5 acres) of land to be able to farm in the next year. With this, he will be certain to continue to do agricultural work.

He feels that working with loans has permitted him to have a greater capacity for growing crops. The production has been abundant. Everyone in his family is well. His economic capacity has increased to cover the necessities of his household.
