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 $475 helped to buy additional materials for her bamboo-weaving business.


Dellie's story

As a married parent of two children, Dellie works hard to support her family. She has a bamboo-weaving business in the Philippines, and she earns additional income from a general store and from raising pigs. Dellie is borrowing PHP 20,000 through NWTF to buy additional materials for her bamboo-weaving business. She successfully repaid her previous loan and is now applying for a new loan to further build her businesses. Dellie has been sustaining her business activities through her past 12 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream of saving money to expand her business.
