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 $800 helped to purchase more maize to make a large quantity of kenkey for distribution.

Adjoa's story

Adjoa is married and has 8 children. She sells kenkey at Abura. Adjoa uses her income to assist her husband in taking care of the home.

Adjoa will use the loan to purchase more maize to enable her to make a large quantity of kenkey for distribution. With the new earnings from her extended business, Adjoa plans to save towards the university education of her children. Her left hand is placed on the pan with the soaked maize that will be milled into dough for the kenkey.
