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).

A loan of $600 helped to buy additional fish to sell.


Gloria's story

Gloria works hard to support her family. She is married and has a business fishing, and buying and selling fish, in the Philippines. Gloria applied for a PHP 24,000 loan through NWTF to buy additional fish to sell. Gloria has been in this business for 21 years. She successfully repaid her previous loan and is now applying for a new loan to further build her fish-vending/fishing business. In the future, Gloria would like to save enough money so she can afford to send her children to college.
