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).

Ryan Joseph's story

Ryan Joseph, a 24-year-old married man with an only son, lives in Aurora, Zamboanga del Sur. He provides motor-transport services in the local community during his free time from work. It helps them to gather additional income for the daily basic needs of the family.

In order to purchase motor accessories and repair the existing vehicle, he borrowed an amount of 15,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) from GDMPC microcredit. He hopes to gain more income from the business in order to support the needs of his only son.
