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 $1,025 helped to buy supplies and coffee.

Marco's story

Marco, 62, is married and lives with his wife and three children. He wants to buy seedlings to resow his coffee plantation as well as some supplies.

He depends on the soil and wants to resow the most damaged areas to increase the next harvest. He wants to become a bigger coffee grower in the area.

With these improvements he aims to increase coffee production and also generate income in order to keep moving ahead and improve his well being.

This is the first loan he receives from FUDECOSUR. He has no previous state-run bank loans. FUDECOSUR easily gave him a loan with a low interest rate.
