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).

Florencia's story

Florencia manages a sari-sari store business from which she sells a variety of goods in her village. She is selling products like soap, shampoo, spices, breads and drinks. She has been doing this type of business for almost 6 years. Her profit from the business has served as allowances for her two children from the time she has sent them to school.

Florencia observed that the items of goods she buys in the market did not satisfy the demands of her costumers. She doesn’t have enough capital to buy the volume of goods able to satisfy her costumers' needs. In this connection, Florencia wishes for a loan of 30,000 PHP to buy additional spices, drinks and soap to sell in her village. She believes that through the loan, she will gain higher income from the business.
