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 $700 helped to buy farming supplies (fertilizer, seeds, herbicides etc.).

Maria Antonia's story

María, is married, 53 years old and lives with her husband in their own home.

To help contribute to the household income, she grows basic crops such as corn and beans. She has ten years of experience with this work, from 6am to 12pm, Monday through Saturday.

She is requesting a loan to buy farming supplies (fertilizer, seeds, herbicides etc). This way she will have everything for the harvest.

She is fighting to fulfill her dream of expanding her cultivating area, generate more income to pay off debt and have a better life with her husband.
