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 $625 helped maintain crops.


Carmen Del Socorro's story

Carmen is is a hardworking,determined, and very humble woman. Together with her spouse she works very hard day after day to move her family forward, the two working independently. She has worked with agricultural crops for many years. Now she needs to invest in the cultivation of pineapple because the climate has not been good and diseases can destroy her crops, so she must give them optimal care. With this loan she will buy fertilizer and other necessary inputs for a good harvest. She is grateful for the support than Afodenic and Kiva funds have brought her.
