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 $1,325 helped to buy agricultural supplies for her coffee crops.

Delmin Suyapa's story

Delmin is happy and content because thanks to previous financing she could buy fertilizers such as coffee-specific formulated fertilizer, manure, nitrates, that she used to grow her coffee crop. Her first loan changed her life as it gave her peace knowing that her coffee crop will be more productive for the provided assistance. Her crop was sold to her satisfaction to her wholesaler who was going to buy the product once harvested and that has been completed. Today Delmin seeks support for a second season to invest in growing coffee as this is the primary source of income for her family and she needs assistance as each crop is vulnerable to the elements and needs to be fertilized and tended.
