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).

Bienvinida's story

Bienvinida is 46 years old and married with two children.

Bienvinida works hard to provide for her family. She runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 15,000 loan through NWTF to buy more items like canned goods, noodles, sugar, snack foods, spices and other groceries to sell in her general store.

Bienvinida has borrowed and repaid 3 loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running her general store for 5 years and also earns an additional income from manicure/pedicure services.

Bienvinida aspires to save enough money so she can afford to send her children to school.
