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).

Vilma's story

Vilma works hard to support her family. She is married and has a fish vending business in the Philippines. Vilma has been in this business for 13 years now and also earns additional income from raising pigs. She successfully paid back her previous loan and is now requesting a new loan to further build her fish vending business.
