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).

Susana's story

Susana is a 42-year-old woman from Sto. Niño, Tukuran. Susana is married and has four children.



To earn a living, she sells fish, while her husband catches the fish. She has been engaged in her business for three years and typically earns approximately 10,000 PRP per month from these activities.



In 2012, Susana joined GDMPC. Susana is requesting a loan in the amount of 15,000 PHP, which would be used to purchase fishing equipment, including hooks and nets. She plans to use the additional revenue she expects to generate from the business as a result of the loan to improve her family's living conditions.
