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).

Norberta's story

Norberta is a 56-year-old married woman from Panglao, Bohol. She has eight children. She operates a motorcycle transport business in the community. She has been operating this business for eight years, and it earns her PHP 5000 a month.

Her husband is a farmer. He grows rice as another source of income. Norberta requested a loan of PHP 21000 to buy fuel and to maintain her motorcyle, including changing oil and tires so she can continue to serve her customers without delays.
