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).

Aunty's story

Aunty S. is married with five children. Her husband is a security guard. For the past 10 years, Aunty S. has been making and selling kenkey, which is a popular Ghanaian staple made from fermented corn dough. Alongside her kenkey business, she also runs a provisions stall, where she sells food items such as salt and condensed milk, as shown in the photograph. Her income helps supplement her husband’s earnings, and she contributes to the payment of household expenses. She would like to increase her provisions business and so will use the loan to purchase more provisions to sell. She plans to build a provisions shop from her increased capital.
