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).

Anonymous's story

This borrower is 48 years old. She is married and has 5 children aged 7, 9, 12, 15 and 25. In 1980, she established her provisions business. She started her business because she wanted to generate income and establish savings. Working 6 days a week and 10 hours a day, she earns about Le 850,000 every month.

She would like a loan of Le 4,000,000. She has already received and successfully repaid 2 loans. She now requires a new loan to buy more provisions by the carton and packet such as milk, sugar and sardines. She hopes that this loan will enable her to increase her monthly profit by approximately Le 250,000.

In the future, she plans to supply to retailers, educate her children and buy land. She is very determined and hardworking. She thanks you for your support.
