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).

Janet's story

As a married mother of three children, Janet works hard to support her family.

She has a fruit-vending business in the Philippines and earns additional income from a general store. Janet is borrowing PHP 19000 through NWTF to buy more fruit to sell to her customers.

Janet has been sustaining her business activities through her past 17 loans from NWTF and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to build and expand her business to secure the future of her family.
