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 $475 helped to buy more sea cucumbers.


Marjorie's story

Marjorie is 27 years old from Talibon, Bohol. She is married with 2 children, ages 3 and 4. Marjorie finds her livelihood through fishing with her husband and buying and selling sea cucumbers. She is asking for a loan to buy more sea cucumbers from other fishermen that she can resell for a profit. Her income will then be used to provide her children with a healthy diet and to further reinvest in the business.
