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 $50 helped to purchase an Envirofit cookstove.


Alita's story

Alita works hard to support two children. She is married and has a business selling native foods in the Philippines.

Alita requested a PHP 1,800 loan through NWTF to buy an Envirofit cookstove.

She is getting the Envirofit cookstove because she wants to make the firewood that she buys last longer; the Envirofit stove needs less fuel to cook food.

Alita is aware that by using the Envirofit cookstove, she is not only saving money, she is also helping the environment and reducing health and hazard risks to her family.
