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).

Pearlie Grace's story

Pearlie Grace describes herself as a friendly person. She sells school bags, office supplies and kitchenware. She is happy to serve her customers because she enjoys her business.

Pearlie travels twice a week to the City of Manila just to purchase the products to sell. She is asking for a loan amounting to 40,000 PHP to buy bags, plates and kettles to sell in the market. She believes that the loan will be a big help for buying a volume of products to sell and for earning more profits.
