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 pay for additional stock of fish needed for her business.

Senia's story

This is Senia. Her previous loan was a big help to her business. She was able to buy more fish and, of course, sell more as well. This has been her business for ten years now, and it continues to grow. She sells six different kinds of fish. She and her husband are working hard to generate income for their family.

She would like to apply for another PHP 30,000 loan to pay for fish needed for her business. More items to sell will result in higher profit. Her profits from business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and pay the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Senia hopes that her business will grow and dreams of providing a good education and future for her children. She faithfully meets with her co-fellowship members to share stories of their work every week. This is where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the word of God she studies.

* All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the word of God, build social capital, and pay micro finance loans.
