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 additional computer parts and supplies needed for her business.

Rowena's story

This is Rowena. She previously received a 10,000 PHP loan that she used to buy spare parts and cover maintenance costs of her internet cafe. Her earnings were a big help in their personal, household, and business expenditures. She also has an electronic reloading business, and she sells ice cream for additional income.

She would like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan for her to buy parts and cover maintenance costs of her computer shop. 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.

Rowena dreams that her business will last longer and hopes to be a good businesswoman. She meets up with her co-fellowship members* every week to share stories of her work and to find strength and encouragement from the Word of God she studies.

* All CCT community partners / clients are organized into fellowship groups 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.
