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 $300 helped to buy vaccines, feed, and medicine to sustain her hogs.


Arlene's story

Arlene is a loving woman. She is 43 years old and has five children. She raises hogs and sells them for profit. She continued in the business while her children were still studying.

Right now, Arlene is now borrowing 12,000 PHP to buy vaccines, feed, and medicine to sustain her hogs. Aside from raising hogs, she also raises chickens and will buy feed for them, too. With hard work, she hopes to achieve economic stability someday.
