Celebrating Earth Day Kiva-style

Coming soon to Kiva's Lend tab: loans to purchase solar lanterns in the Philippines!

In celebration of Earth Day, Kiva is happy to announce that field partner "Negros Women for Tomorrow Foundation (NWTF) is in the process of rolling out a pilot program to distribute solar lanterns to its clients. It costs about $70 USD and the loan cycle is either one or two years. How do solar lanterns serve the triple bottom line? I’m glad you asked."
