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).

Myrna's story

Myrna is 57 years old and widowed, with eight children. Myrna works very hard to provide for them.

Myrna runs a general store in the Philippines and has requested a PHP 10,000 loan through Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation, Inc. (NWTF) to purchase additional groceries to sell.

Myrna has been in this business for two years and she sells a variety of items, such as curls, biscuits, soft drinks, and other groceries.

In the future, Myrna would like to save enough money to expand her business.
