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 $425 helped to buy feed, vitamins and additional piglets to raise.

Cristy's story

Due to lack of job opportunities, Cristy decided to engage in a hog-raising business while she takes care of her two kids. Her husband is a farmer who cultivates their farmland by planting rice and some vegetables to sell. They aim to earn and save more income to build their own house and provide for the schooling of their children. She plans to raise more piglets for sale but she doesn't have enough capital. Therefore, she is asking for an additional loan of PHP 17,000.00 to buy feeds, vitamins and additional piglets to raise. She mentioned that, through this loan, she can be able to make an improvement in the business and hopes that someday she will become financially stable.
