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 $1,250 helped to purchase products for her direct selling business.

Cristina's story

Cristina’s goal in life is to uplift their family's quality of life. Cristina’s children are all attending school. Her husband is working abroad as an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker).

Cristina manages a livestock business in their village. Some of her husband's monthly remittances for their children's allowance in school went for hog feed.

With her determination to help her husband in fulfilling their needs, Cristina also engages in a direct selling business of shoes and ready-to-wear clothes for additional sources of income.

In this connection, Cristina wants to borrow a loan of PHP 50,000 to pay for products for her direct selling business. She hopes to purchase more products to allow her costumers a chance to choose what they want. With the income, she will be able to provide her hogs feed.
