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 $150 helped to purchase more frozen food to sell.


Helen's story

As a married mother of seven children, Helen works hard to support her family.

She has a business selling frozen foods in the Philippines and earns additional income from a general store. Helen is borrowing PHP 6000 through NWTF to purchase more frozen food to sell.

Helen has been sustaining her business activities through her past two loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to save money to expand her business and continue to send her children to school.
