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 $750 helped to buy stocks of shoes and slippers for her business.


Catherine's story

Catherine has operated her footwear business for two years and four months. She is happily married and has only one child. Catherine aims to have a better way of living and improve her business.

Catherine would like to add in-demand shoes and slippers to her inventory so she can encourage more customers to buy her products. However, due to insufficient capital, she is asking for a loan of 30,000 PHP. She hopes that the lenders will approve her loan so she could improve her profits to serve her family's basic needs and save for her future security and the education of her only child.
