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).

Ignacia's story

Ignacia is 49 years old, married and has 1 child in school. She works very hard to provide for them.

Ignacia runs a sari-sari store in the Philippines and requested a 12,000 PHP loan through NWTF to buy stocks of groceries to sell in her store. Ignacia has been in this business for 13 years and sells a variety of items such as snack foods, soft-drinks and beverages.

In the future, she would like to save enough to expand her business.
