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 $700 helped to buy kitchen utensils to sell in the market.

Rosa's story

Rosa is a wise person who will not stop trying until she succeeds. She started her business selling glassware at the age of 32. Now, she is 52 and has already been running her business for 20 years. Her inspiration in running her business for such a long time is her family. She wants to raise her family out of poverty.

Rosa is married and blessed with six children. Her husband is also a vendor in the market. When she started her business she experienced some failures, but she did not lose hope. Now, Rosa is happy to report that her business is doing well. Through the income she earns, she is able to provide her children allowances in school.

Rosa wants to maintain and gain a higher income from her business, which is why she decided to take a loan of PHP 30,000 to buy kitchen utensils to sell in the market. She hopes to receive the loan and maintain the business as her source of income.
