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).

Bhebeth's story

Bhebeth is 34 years old and married, with five children, two of whom are in school. Bhebeth works very hard to provide for them.

Bhebeth runs a general store in the Philippines and has requested a PHP 14,000 loan through Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. (NWTF) to buy food and household goods, like canned goods, soap, shampoo, spices, and eggs to sell.

Bhebeth has been in this business for three years. In the future, Bhebeth would like to save enough money, so she could afford to send her children to college.
