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).

Mary Joy's story

As a married parent of 3 children, Mary Joy works hard to support her family.

She has a vegetable vending business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from a general store. Mary Joy is borrowing PHP 18000 through NWTF to purchase additional stocks of vegetables to sell for her vegetable vending business.

Mary Joy has been sustaining her business activities through her past 9 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving enough money to afford to send her children to college.
