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).

Rodel's story

Rodel is a rice grower in Solana. He had been planting and harvesting rice to sell for over 10 years now. He is 40 years old and had two children who attend school. Education is the only legacy he could pass on that is why he strives hard to give the best education to them. He had insufficient funds to maintain his farming business, which is his only source of income. From this, he is asking for a loan of 25,000 PHP to buy inputs to enhance crop production. He will buy fertilizers and pesticides to use in farming.

With a plentiful harvest, Rodel will save more funds for his children's education and keep growing as a successful farmer.
