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).

Marivic's story

Marivic, age 50, is happy tending her little store. She is married with three kids, and her husband is a butcher. The store is her means of earning a living to support her family. Fortunately, her store is located in a populous neighborhood, and so she makes promising daily sales. Marivic keeps on running the store well even though there is increased competition from other stores. Marivic believes that with PMPC's support, as one family they will sustain and beat the competition.

Marivic has reached her 5th year being a member of Paglaum MPC. She has applied for a loan of PHP 50,000 for the store. Expanding her inventory will mean additional income. She has confidence that she can maintain the label of member in good standing. She is a hardworking mother and wishes to sustain the store and from that afford a good education for her children.
