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 $700 helped to purchase additional sacks of rice grains to sell.

Erma's story

As a married parent of six children, Erma works hard to support her family.

She has a business buying and selling rice grains in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from a general store. Erma is borrowing PHP 29,500 through NWTF to purchase additional sacks of rice grains to sell for her rice grains business.

Erma has been sustaining her business activities through her past 21 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.
