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 $625 helped to invest in buying a photocopier.

Khadim Rassoul's story

Mr. Khadim Rassoul Cisse, 24 and single, lives in Yoff. He has been working making bricks for a long time. At the same time, he offers a service. He owns a photocopier and manages a little business in the neighborhood where he lives. He got into this business because of its profitability. He has been a member of the Yoff branch since November 2006. He has already been accorded two loans which he reimbursed correctly.

He is requesting a loan in the amount of 300,000 francs to be used to purchase a second photocopy machine. The loan will allow him to have better equipment and will increase his productivity. This loan will also help him to satisfy the ever-growing demand for his services among his clients and allow him to earn more, so that he can cover daily expenses more easily.
