Yesterday I took a trip to a CCT Kiva branch located in Caloocan, about 2 hours north of the head office in Manila. CCT offices often have inspirational posters and signs, but I thought this one was very relevant to Kiva.Sign in CCT Branch

Kiva lenders have good character: “They lend money to those in need without interest.”

Here are links to updates on some of the borrowers in Caloocan that have benefited from Kiva loans:

Teresa Barola: video game arcade owner
