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).

Griva's story

Griva E. is from the city of Dapitan. She is 55 years old. Griva is married and has 5 adult-aged children. To make a living, Griva owns and operates a business that provides motorcycle-for-hire services to local community members. Griva is just starting this business.

In 2006, Griva joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Griva has successfully repaid a previous loan of 14,500 PHP from PMPC. Griva is requesting a new loan of 14,000 PHP which will be used to purchase a cab to attach to her motorcycle to improve the business. This loan will be the 6th loan taken out by Griva from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve the general living conditions of her family.
