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).

Daylinda's story

For over 3 years in Lapasan, Clarin, Misamis Occidental, Daylinda, a 55-year-old widowed mother of 3 children, has made a living through the operation of a general store, selling a variety of food and home-use products. She earns 5,000 PHP a month from these activities.

In 2007, Daylinda joined GDMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her business and living situation. She is now requesting a loan of 8,800 PHP to purchase new items such as candies, Milo, shampoo, soaps, etc. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the loan as a reserve for future emergencies.
