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).

Gabriel's story

Gabriel has been engaged in the livestock business, in particular raising hogs, for ten years. He is single and lives with his parents. Gabriel is the eldest child among his nine siblings.

Gabriel raises one sow and three piglets. He also cultivates the family's two hectares of corn field. Gabriel's main goal is to increase his yields next crop season and to make his hogs healthier upon reaching their maturity period. To make this dream come true, he is seeking a loan of PHP 25,000 to buy sacks of hog feed and vitamins. He will use part of the loan to buy farm inputs to improve his corn crop production. Gabriel believes that his livestock business is under control because he has already undergone some difficulties and hardships in running a business. He hopes for continuous financial support from lenders in order to have a stable source of income and a better way of living.
