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).

Christina's story

Christina D. is married and living with her three children. She has received senior high education. Her husband is a trader.

Christina sells varieties of body lotions and hair creams at Elmina and has been doing this for some time now. She uses her income to support her husband in taking care of the children and any other expenditures that may come her way.
