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).

Margaret's story

Margaret is 54, married and a mother with six children. Among the children, one is schooling and the rest are currently working. Margaret is a resourceful mother who works very hard to provide food for the children. She is a petty trader who sells in the community market of Sefwi Bekwai, where she lives. She sells items like cassava, spices, vegetables, yams, etc., and she has been in business for 30 years. She requests a loan to buy more foodstuffs like cassava, yams, vegetables, etc. She takes delivery of stock from the farming communities. She would be grateful for your assistance.
