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).

Regina's story

Regina is 42 years old and married with six children. With five of the children currently in school, Regina works very hard to provide for them.

Regina runs a general store in the Philippines. She has been in this business for three years and sells a variety of items. She requested an 18,000 PHP loan through NWTF to purchase more stock to sell in her general store, such as canned goods, cooking oil, soft-drinks, and biscuits.

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