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 $500 helped to buy fresh meat, fish, vegetables and spices needed for his eatery.

Noel's story

Being a responsible father, Noel aims to improve his family's living status, educate his children and give his family a better life. He is 48 years old and has two school-age children.

Due to the high cost of commodities and school fees, Noel plans to strengthen his small eatery to generate sufficient income to satisfy his family's needs and continue sending his children to school. However, he has inadequate capital. So he is asking for a loan of PHP 20,000 to buy fresh meat, fish, vegetables and spices to be cooked and sold in his eatery.

Despite the problems and difficulties he has encountered in life, Noel has the determination to improve his business. He says that this financial assistance will be a great help to him in accomplishing his goal of growing his business.
