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 $300 helped to purchase additional livestock to sell.

Gracilla's story

Grecilla is 48 years old, married and has five children, two of whom are in school.
Grecilla is in the agricultural business of buying and selling livestock in the Philippines and also earns additional income from a general store. Grecilla requested a PHP 12,000 loan through NWTF to purchase additional livestock to sell.
Grecilla has been buying and selling livestock for 2 years now, and has borrowed 7 times in the past from NWTF to sustain it.
She has successfully paid back her previous loan and is now requesting a new loan to further expand her livestock and general store businesses. She wants to purchase additional livestock to raise and then sell.
In the future, Grecilla would like to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
