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).

Pacita's story

Pacita is a mother and entrepreneur. She is 55 years old and her spouse is a farmer. They have two children. The eldest is working in a restaurant while her youngest is in high-school education. To supplement her spouse's income, Pacita sells grocery items in her small store. She also raise hogs to re-sell for a profit. Together, they generate income for the family.

Pacita is a business-minded woman that is why she keeps on gaining good profits from her businesses. She has insufficient fund to buy more merchandise that is why she is asking for a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy canned goods, biscuits, eggs to sell. She will also buy feed and medicines to sustain her hogs.

Good income from the business will help her achieve economic stability. She hopes to keep extending her good products and services too.
