We loan because...
we believe in the power of lending to help even the poorest populations access the benefits of social entrepreneurship.

About us
We are the friends and fans of the Entrepreneurs du Monde (EdM) Burkina Faso office, one of Kiva's first non-MFI partners.

In addition to providing technical, operational and financial support to three MFIs in the country (including one Kiva Partner), EdM runs two social entrepreneurship projects in Burkina Faso.

Kiva's partnership with EdM is focused on the "Save for a Stove" project which promotes the economic and ecological advantages of gas stoves, and improved cooking stoves which use 40% less fuel than traditional ones - which save women both time and money whilst fighting deforestation and CO2 emissions. The program will enable both local distributors (for re-sale) and groups of women from the poorest populations (for direct use) to buy either a gas stove or an energy efficient stove, with the help of microcredit and savings.

Location: Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso
