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).

Precious Group's story

Olivia is forty-five years old. She is married and has given birth to five children, all of whom are in school. She works hard to support her husband and help him to provide for the family. Olivia is the leader of a trust bank group called "Precious."

The members of the group all work hard. They are engaged in commercial activities, such as selling food, groceries, and clothing. Some of them sell their products door-to-door ("hawking") while others trek to nearby communities to sell on their market days. They buy their goods in Kumasi and nearby towns. They have acquired a great deal of experience over the years and they want to expand their businesses, hence the need for the loan to buy goods in bulk to realize this dream.

In this group: Olivia, Adwoa, Elizabeth, Mercy, Akosua, Rebecca, Akosua, Yvonne
