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).

A loan of $675 helped to purchase more foodstuffs to sell.

Charity's story

Charity works hard to make sure her home is not lacking. With her last Kiva loan, she stocked her shop with more foodstuffs, like groundnut oil, palm oil, smoked fish, Maggi cubes (bouillon), etc. This has improved her business and her profit. Getting more goods attracted more customers to her shop and she has been able to satisfy the growing demand of her numerous customers.

She hopes to further improve and expand her business. She is asking for a loan of 100,000 Nigerian naira to purchase more foodstuffs to sell.

Charity lives in Lagos, is married to a commercial driver and has three children. She thanks all lenders for their financial empowerment.
