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).

Lolita's story

As a married parent of one child, Lolita works hard to support her family.

Lolita has a general store business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from pig fattening. Lolita is borrowing PHP 29,500 through NWTF to buy more grocery items like soap, shampoo, noodles, canned goods, spices, sugar, and others to sell at her general store business.

She successfully paid back her previous loan and is now requesting a new loan to further build her general store and pig fattening business. Lolita has been sustaining her business activities through her past 14 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to build and expand her business to secure the future of her family.
