This holiday season, you can light up a life by making a loan on Kiva, or giving the gift of a Kiva Card to someone you love.
Flordelisa is a fisherwoman living in the Philippines. Ignited by the desire to send her children to college, she searched for a way to provide access to a good education. The solution that brightened her entire family’s future: a Kiva loan supported by lenders around the world.

Now, she and her husband are both entrepreneurs.
