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).

A loan of $475 helped to buy more dried fish to sell.


Vilma's story

As a married parent of three children, Vilma works hard to support her family. She buys and sells dried fish in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from a piggery. Vilma is requesting a loan of PHP 20000 through NWTF to buy more dried fish to sell.

Vilma has been sustaining her business activities through her past 12 loans from NWTF and hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving money to expand her business.
