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).

Marigold's story

Marigold is 58 years old and married with 3 children. Marigold works very hard to provide for them.

Marigold runs a general store in the Philippines and requested a PHP 10,000 loan through NWTF to purchase more grocery products to sell in her store.

Marigold has been in this business for five years and sells a variety of items such as bread, soft drinks, biscuits and other groceries.

In the future Marigold would like to save enough money to expand her business.
