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).

Mitylene's story

As a married parent of 2 children, Mitylene works hard to support her family.

She has a tailoring business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from raising pigs and selling fish. Mitylene is borrowing PHP 12000 through NWTF to purchase additional materials like linen, and other items for her tailoring business.

Mitylene has been sustaining her business activities through her past 9 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save enough money so she could afford to send her children to college.
