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).

Benita's story

Benita is 47 years old from Tinago, Dauis, Bohol. She is married with six children. Her husband works as the chief cook in one of the hospitals in the city. She helps in raising her family by operating a sari-sari (variety) store and selling home-cooked snacks like fried bananas. She is asking for a loan to buy soft drinks, hog feed and rice to resell. Her loan will be a big help for her business to thrive. Any profit will provide her family with a healthy diet and will help to pay her children's school fees.
