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 $375 helped to buy feed, vitamins, and vaccines for his hogs.


Benito's story

Benito and his wife built their own small piggery three years ago, and he also manages five acres of corn field. The couple has been blessed with two children, the older of whom is in school, while the younger is still an infant.

Benito's goal in life is to produce quality hogs, so that he can have a stable business and earn a higher, more consistent income. With that goal always in mind, he is asking for a loan of PHP 15,000. He will invest the money in feed, vitamins, and vaccine for the hogs. Ensuring the pigs' nutrition helps Benito ensure better, more reliable profit throughout the year.
