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).

One Family Group's story

Joseph F. is the leader of a group of 4 borrowers called 'One Family'. He is a 36-year-old junior student of the University of Liberia. He is single with a 4-year-old child; the child's educational level is kindergarten. Joseph and his daughter live in WestPoint which is a crowded and poor community close to downtown Monrovia, Liberia.

Joseph's business is buying used shoes wholesale and selling them to the residents of Monrovia, Liberia. He has been running this business for 5 years and started with Ld$6,000 that was given to him by his oldest sister. His business has improved. Joseph always purchases quality goods to be sold to his customers so that they will continue buying from him.

Joseph hopes to establish a store in the future and dreams of giving his children a quality education and a balanced diet that will keep them healthy. Joseph needs this loan in order to purchase durable goods to be sold to customers.
