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).

A loan of $1,175 helped to purchase seedlings and fertilizers for his corn farm business.


Gerry's story

With his desire to improve his family's living situation, Gerry has devoted himself full-time to his corn farm business for 25 years. He is 41 years old and is married to a business minded woman. They have five children. His wife works in her sari-sari (convenience) store and sometimes she sells different kinds of fish in the local community. They work hard to give their children a good quality of life and to lift them out of poverty.

Now, he is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 to purchase seedlings and fertilizers for his corn farm business. He hopes to grow and increase his yield with the help of this loan.
