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).

Emma's story

As a married parent of five children, Emma works hard to support her family.

She has a general store in the Philippines and also earns additional income from motorcycle transport and food vending. Emma is borrowing PHP 50000 through NWTF to purchase items to sell in her general store such as eggs, shampoo, soap, coffee, and canned goods.

Emma has been sustaining her business activities through her past 12 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving enough to provide a secure future for her family.
