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 $1,175 helped a member purchase of raw materials to produce Oil of Myrrh.

Kassoumaye De Cachouane Group's story

We are a group of young people supervised by a professional in the extraction of Oil of Myrrh, a product in very high demand locally, throughout Senegal, and in neighboring countries. It is very rare and difficult to obtain. We will be able to produce the oil thanks to the experience of women in our eco-village. The funds will be used to purchase seeds of fruit which will be treated and transformed to obtain the oil. We are young people living in a geographically isolated enclave, so we will benefit from having work here in our ecovillage. We are certain we'll be successful because this product is highly valued for its healing properties.

In this group: Prudence, Awa, Aliou, Mansour, Abdoul Aziz
