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).

Mariuxi Teresa's story

Mariuxi, 25, is single and has two children. She lives with her children and her mother in Ventanas canton in Los Ríos province. She belongs to the communal bank Ventanilla Cevallos, located in San Francisco in San Juan de Pueblo Viejo parish, and she is a farmer.

Mariuxi grows corn, soybeans, and rice. She has applied for a loan to buy seed, insecticide, fertilizer, and herbicide. The loan will let her buy needed farming supplies. She dreams of owning her own business, and she likes to play indoor soccer in her free time.
