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).

Pedro's story

Pedro, 49, lives in his own house with his wife and three children who are 15, 14 and 11 years of age. He works in agriculture growing the main basic grains like corn and beans. He’s been in this activity for many years and with profits earned is able to cover his household expenses.

Pedro’s asking for a loan to be able to buy manure, fertilizer, seeds, herbicide, etc. to give his family better economic stability.
