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).

Omar's story

Mr Omar D. is a young merchant of 35 years who specializes in the sale of clothing and plastic bags. He has been operating in this domain since 2000. He chose this activity through his parents mostly in the objective to make a living. He is requesting a 500,000 francs loan to bolster his stock of denim trousers, T-shirts and shirts. He hopes to increase his benefits and to improve the situation of his family, for whom he is the main provider. Mr D. has been a member of the Yoff credit union since October 2007. He already benefited from a prior loan. He is the father of two children aged one and three.
