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 $925 helped to buy seedlings and inputs.

Jose's story

José is 53 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and four children. He wants to buy seedlings for re-sowing his land, and for inputs. He has experience and the land, but the coffee is in mediocre condition, which is why he wants to re-sow the most damaged parts and continue with his project.

With the loan, he hopes to generate income for the wellbeing of his family, and also to improve this next year's harvests. This is the first loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has not had previous loans with state banks, but FUDECOSUR has provided him the loan greater ease and much lower interest rates.
