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).

Kokouvi's story

Kokouvi is a young unmarried man. He opened a bar in 2007 that he calls "ALMAX". It is doing well and brings in a good income. His bar is very busy in the evenings. Because the year-end holidays will soon be here, he would like to put his best foot forward. So he is requesting a loan from WAGES that will be used to buy cases of beverages and miscellaneous items.
