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).

Ana's story

Ana S. is from the village of Pob. Manukan. She is 37 years old, married, and has seven school-aged children.

Ana operates a family member's sari-sari (general) store in the local community. She has been engaged in this business for over five years and earns approximately 4,500 PHP a month.

In 2010, Ana joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her business and living situation. She has successfully repaid a previous loan of 4,000 PHP from PMPC. This previous loan was used to purchase materials for her store renovation.

Ana is requesting a new loan of 10,000 PHP, which will be used to purchase additional products for her store. This will be the second loan taken out by Ana from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated to improve the general living conditions of her family.
