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).

Jovita's story

Jovita, 46, is married and has seven school-age children. She believes that "patience and hard" work will enable her to achieve her goals. She and her husband want to improve their income to satisfy their necessities and continue sending their children to school. She sells beauty products such as lotion, body sprays, soaps, roll ons, creams, feminine wash and many more. She aimed to acquire additional stocks of the beauty products and also feed, fertilizer and pesticides to sell in their community but lacked adequate capital. She is asking for a loan of 50,000.00 PHP to buy the items. Jovita believes that this financial assistance will enable her to improve the business and hopes that someday, she will become financially stable and their children will have a bright future.
