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).

Perlita's story

Perlita is a responsible mother who aimed to become successful someday in order to give her family a better living. She is 40 years old and has three school-age children.

Since farming is the main source of their living, she and her husband planned to improve their farming business in order to generate sufficient income to satisfy their family needs. In this regard, Perlita planned to raise more pigs to sell, but she does not have enough capital. For this reason, she is asking for an additional 18,000 PHP to buy feed, vitamins, and additional piglets to raise. She is hoping that her loan will be granted to be used in the improvement of her business.
