The wars the Philippines have been in are the Vietnam war, World war 1 and 11 and also wars against the Japanese and the Spanish. The Philippines were ruled by two other countries before they beecme independent. They have only been independent for about 40 years.

Why I Chose Maria I chose Maria because my aunt is also from the Philippines and I wanted to learn more about the Philippines and help her people. Maria is a Christian. She has been on Kiva for 46 months and she has only been 20% raised. She looked like she could use some help to support her family of ten. More Facts The average monthly income is $ 1175, the funds lent to people in the Philippines from Kiva is $ 29,186,700. The amount of people below the poverty line is 27.9%, which is almost a quarter of their population. The Philippines total land area is 298,170 square km which includes 7100 islands. Christian Perspective I think that God has blessed the Philippines in many ways such as giving them a lot of natural resources, their warm climate, and their rich soil. He has also blessed the earth because he gave the idea of micro finance to Mohammed Yunas which has helped many people get out of poverty in countries all over the world. It has also helped North Americans to learn more about other countries that are still developing or are undeveloped and to help support them by loaning them money. Their history has impacted them a lot, like the wars they have been apart of. The wars have impacted them a great deal and they have lost many people but in the end they became independent because of it. All the natural disasters such as tsunamies and floods have also impacted a great deal on how the Philippines is today. Proverbs 19:17 Full transcript
