Kiva Lending Team: Female Education & Empowerment in Africa
We loan because...
When rural African girls and young women leave school, they enter an adult world of massive unemployment where women have very few job prospects.
Their pathways are to marry young and often to an older man, not of their choice; or join the exodus to towns and cities where they are often employed in exploitative jobs.
Our aim is to give them another path — one that leads to empowerment and self-reliance.
We help young women succeed because they must. They take the opportunities of our micro-loans and make them work in their lives and in the lives of their families.
