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).

Leonidas's story

As a widowed parent of one child, Leonidas works hard to support her family.

She has a buy and sell fruits business in the Philippines, and also earns additional income from fishing. Leonidas is borrowing PHP 22,000 through NWTF to purchase more stock of fruits to sell for her buy and sell fruits business.

Leonidas has been sustaining her business activities through her past 20 loans from NWTF. She hopes that her hard work will help her attain her dream to build and expand her business to secure the future of her family.
