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).

Hansel's story

Hansel is 22-year-old married man from Talibon, Bohol. He has 3 children ages 5, 2, and 4 months old. He is engaged in fishing. He catches and, at the same time, sells fish to customers in the community. He has been fishing for more than 2 years. His wife raises hogs to earn additional income.

In order to improve his livelihood activity, Hansel requested a loan of 10,000 PHP to buy fishing materials, additional piglets, and groceries for the family to increase more catch and create more sales to provide his family with proper food and save some profits for his children's education.
