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).

Irene's story

Irene is a hog-raiser living in Peñablanca with her two children. She raise hogs to re-sell to butchers upon achieving the desired weight. She makes profits from her business and has been able to give an allowance to her children.

She would like to keep selling healthy hogs that is why she is asking for a loan of PHP 8,000 to buy feed and vaccines for hogs. It will ensure good nutrition. She aims to become a successful hog-raiser and keep improving her family's living conditions.
