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).

Roberto Alfredo's story

Fifty-six year-old Roberto is a very responsible family man. He has always been known for giving his best to his children. He currently lives with his wife and their 2 children. He is a very hard worker who has always worked with joy and enthusiasm.

He is a farmer. Every year he plants the main basic grains from the region: corn and beans.

Roberto would like to increase his sales. To do so he is requesting a loan which will allow him to buy seeds, manure, fertilizers, and pesticides among other items. He will also be able to improve the plot of land where he plants his crops.

He hopes to receive the help he is requesting because he does not have another source of income. This way he will continue putting bread on his family's table without limit.
