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).

Leonila's story

Leonila wants to further develop and improve her business, so she is requesting a loan from Kiva lenders in the amount of PHP25000 to sustain her pig-raising business. She needs enough capital to provide the needed food supply for her hogs. According to her, the business has come to be a big financial help to their family, especially in providing for the education of her children in school. She earns a good profit from the business and wants to maintain it for the welfare of her family.

Leonila is forty-eight years old. She is married to Pascual who works as a house carpenter. They are presently residing in the rural village of Barangay Annafunan East Tuguegarao, City. She has two children: Walter and Lilibeth. Leonila believes that by maintaining her hog-raising business, they will be able to cope with whatever financial difficulties they might encounter in the future, because it is a profitable enterprise.
