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).

Cheikh's story

Mr. Cheikh D. is a 25-year-old poultry farmer living in the Wayembam district of Bambilor. He is married but has no children. After primary schooling he turned to vegetable farming before he specialised in raising chickens. He has over ten years’ experience in his business.

He has been a member of the Bambilor branch (of UIMCEC) since January 2010. He is requesting a loan for 450,000 francs he will devote to raising 300 chicks. This loan will enable him to increase his earnings, improve his social situation and more specifically buy some furniture.
