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).

Emma's story

Emma is a retail store owner in Enrile. She sells grocery items to the people in her village. She is 35 years old, married and has two children. She patiently attends her customers needs and would like to keep improving it. That is why she is asking for a loan of PHP 9,000 to buy sardines, eggs, biscuits, noodles and soap to sell in her store. This will help increase sales capacity and income as well.

Someday, gaining more income and good customers will help Emma achieve her goal of business development.
