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).

Rosalinda's story

Rosalina is 59 years old, married. She lives with her husband and children in Lanna.

Five years ago, Rosalina started a grocery business where she sells household products, such as basic grains, meats, bread, medicines, donuts, soft drinks, and toiletries. She has decided to request a loan in the amount of PHP 10,000 so that she can restock her store with basic grains, meats, dairy products, and other groceries in order to offer a wider and better variety of products. With this investment, she hopes to increase her sales and her income. She also expects to improve her quality of life so that she can help her children graduate.
