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).

Ma Fe's story

As a married parent of five children, Ma Fe works hard to support her family. She has a fishing business in the Philippines, and she earns additional income from pig fattening.

Ma Fe is borrowing PHP 10,000 through NWTF. She will use the loan to buy materials for the repair of her fishing boat.

Ma Fe has been sustaining her business activities through her past five loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream, to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
