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 $200 helped to buy insecticides and fertilizers.


Maria Ester's story

Maria is 34 years old and lives with her two children who are in school. She currently works as a farmer. For the past several years, the main crops she has planted have been corn and beans. With the earnings she generates from her sales, she has been able to help her children get ahead and pay for some of the household expenses.


Maria is requesting a loan so that she can buy insecticides and fertilizers, as indicated by the photograph. This will enable her to have a good harvest, which will generate more profits that will allow her to provide the best for her family.
