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).

Kerstine's story

Kerstine is married and she works hard to support her family.

She has a general store business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from pig fattening. Kerstine is borrowing PHP 20000 through NWTF in order to purchase more groceries to sell for her general store business.

Kerstine has been sustaining her business activities through her past 6 loans from NWTF and more recently, through Kiva. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save money to expand her business.
