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).

Marlon's story

Marlon, age 26, lives in San Juan Panaon, Misamis Occidental. For the past five years, he has cultivated bananas to support the needs of his only child. He earns an income of 5,000 PHP a month from this business.

For a young father, there’s nothing that can make him happier than to see his family in a good living situation.

Marlon has requested a loan of 10,000 PHP from GDMPC to purchase additional seeds, seedlings and young crops to raise. He is a new client with GDMPC.

In the future, he plans to improve his business.
