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 $625 helped to buy ingredients for her peanuts.


Charles's story

As a married mother of ten children, Charles works hard to support her family.

She has a business making and selling peanuts (salted and sugar coated) in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from pig-fattening. Charles is borrowing PHP 25,000 through NWTF to buy ingredients for her peanuts.

Charles has been sustaining her business activities through her past 22 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.
