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 $1,000 helped to prepare to plant rice on his land.


Ademar's story

Ademar, 37, has two school-age children. He needs this loan to buy supplies to prepare to plant rice on his land so that he can survive. Ademar's business faces challenging weather at this time of year because extreme cold can ruin the crops.

He will use the profits to improve his and his family's standard of living, as he pays all the household expenses. He is responsible and hardworking. He thanks the institution for its support. He will sell his harvest directly to consumers in the local market.
