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).

Dionicio's story

Dionicio is 39 years old and married. With a schooling level equivalent to elementary school, he has 4 children that depend economically on him. Dionicio makes a living out of agriculture, growing his own land, and usually produces 100 boxes of tomato, 400 bags of bell peppers, 300 bags of sweet peas and 25 loads of potato. His land is located in Vila Vila, ~22 miles south of the town of Pojo. He describes himself as a hard-working, accountable man who wants to advance financially in life and would like to request a loan to purchase a milking cow in order to improve his income and the quality of the life of his children.
