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).

Juana Marta's story

Juana, 56, lives with her life companion and their children in a house of her own. She works growing corn and beans. She’s been working in agriculture for several years and has gained much experience that leads her to obtain the best harvests. She sells her crops in places adjacent to her community and has a large clientele that prefers her because of her quality, good prices and above all, good service.

She needs to invest which is why she’s asking for a loan to buy corn and bean seeds, insecticide, herbicide, etc. Juana has good payment references from acquaintances and she’s very responsible. She assures that she’ll be able to repay the loan in the established time frame while at the same time is confident that she’ll provide economic security for her home.
