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).

Victorina's story

Two years ago, when Victorina was asked her dream, she replied she wanted to finish giving her four children their college education and to have decent work. Now, she has successfully reached her dream by means of working hard. Victorina is in her sixties. She engages in a mini-grocery business in the market.

At present, Victorina’s wish is to expand her business site to become a grocery store. Victorina is requesting a loan of PHP 50,000 to buy beverages, breads, and snacks to sell. She believes that the loan will serve as her first step in achieving her wish.
