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 $750 helped to buy more bales of used clothing for her business.

Aminata's story

This is 46-year-old Aminata. She is married and has two children aged 26 and 22 years. In 1985, Amie established her used clothing business. She began her business because she believed this can be a means for getting income to provide support to her children. Working 7 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about 430,000 SLL every month from this business. She needs a loan of 3,000,000 SLL.

Aminata requires a loan in order to buy more bales of used clothing. In the future, Amie plans to educate her children and to buy a plot of land. She thanks you for your support.
