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 $1,200 helped to purchase more grocery products to sell at her store.


Estrella's story

A married mother of three children, Estrella works hard to support her family.

She has a variety store business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from food vending and raising livestock. Estrella is borrowing PHP 49,500 through NWTF to purchase more grocery products to sell at her store.

Estrella has sustained her business activities through her past 15 loans from NWTF, and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her obtain her dream to save enough to provide a secure future for her family.
