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).

Segundo Alberto, 29, is married and has one daughter. He lives with his wife and child in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. The Aso Acaminando por un Buen Futuro communal bank is located in the Cachely district of Ventanas Canton, where people make a living in agricultural work.

Segundo Alberto makes a living growing corn. He's requesting the loan to buy insecticide, urea, Ranger herbicide, and an herbicide bomb. With the help of the loan he'll be able to get the fertilizer and buy the bomb to bomb the crops. He'll make his purchases in Ventanas.
