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 livestock.


Marta's story

Marta, 59, is married and has two children with her husband. She wants the loan to buy livestock to raise to expand the number of animals. She'll sell them when they're big and earn a profit. The livestock business will help her get ahead with her family.

This is her first financing from FUDECOSUR. She says the credit committee has made it easy for her.

She hopes she grows with this project and achieves her objectives so in the future she can give her family a better quality of life and greater economic stability.

This is the first loan she has received from FUDECOSUR. She had not had other loans previously from state banks, but FUDECOSUR has offered her a loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.
