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).

Marilyn's story

Marilyn is 60 years old and widowed with four children.

Marilyn works hard to provide for her family. She runs a variety store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 10000 loan through NWTF to purchase more items, such as candies, curlers, school supplies, toys and other miscellaneous items.

Marilyn has borrowed and repaid 10 loans from NWTF before this loan. She has been running the variety store for 20 years and also earns an income from hog raising.

Marilyn aspires to build and expand her business to secure the future of her family.
