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 $475 helped to pay for the ingredients of 'ice scramble' such as ice, different candies, and chocolate.

Michelle's story

This is Michelle. She previously accessed an 20,000 PHP loan that she used to purchase the ingredients of ice scramble. Her earnings were a big help in her personal, household and business expenditures. She has been in this business for two years now.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan for her to buy the ingredients of 'ice scramble' such as ice, different candies, and chocolate needed in her business. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Michelle hopes to have another branch and dreams to live happily. She meets up with her co-fellowship members to share stories of her work every week, where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.

* All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.
