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 $325 helped to buy fertilizer and herbicides.

Cecilia's story

Cecilia T. owns a small parcel of land. She uses it to plant rice to support her family. Her husband, Larry T., is the one who manages the farm. To ensure a better yield, they check their farm every day; they remove the weeds and watch so the birds do not eat the rice. She is 36 years old and has three children who are students.

She is asking for a loan of Php 15,000 from CEVI. She will use the loan to buy fertilizer and herbicides. The loan will truly help her have a better yield. She is also interested in looking for some other line of business to augment their income. In that way, she believes, she could well support the needs of her children.

CEVI helps her sustain her business. Now she enjoys having credit assistance, training and insurance coverage.
