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).

Evelyn's story

Evelyn is 45 years old and married with two children. She is a very hard-working entrepreneur.

Evelyn's house was destroyed by super typhoon Haiyan which swept through the Philippines on November 8, 2013. She has restarted her general store business and is committed to regaining what she lost. Evelyn is taking out a PHP 10,000 housing loan through NWTF to purchase building materials and pay for construction labor to build a house for her family.

Evelyn has been with NWTF since 2010 in her pursuit to rise out of poverty. With your help, she will be able to start once more in a new home. Evelyn would like to build and expand her business to secure the future of her family.
