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).

In the future he would like to have more capital so he can plant more cardamom and in this way generate more income. The other members also raise cardamom. There is one person in the photograph who did not receive a loan.
