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).

Josefina's story

Josefina is from the village of Nailon, Tudela, Misamis Occidental. She is 69 years old, a widow, and has three adult children. To make a living, she owns a business providing transportation service to the local community. She's able to earn a monthly net income of 3,000 PHP from this business. She has been engaged in her business for more than six years.

In 2010, Josefina joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Josefina is requesting a loan of 10,000 PHP, which will be used to repair a transport vehicle used in the business. This will be her first loan from PMPC.
