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 $3,600 helped a member to buy and resell fruits.


Gorgorlou Group's story

This group was established on March 23, 2001. It is made up of 15 women who live in the same neighborhood. Their main business is retail.

Mrs. Elisabeth, raising her hand in the photograph, is responsible for the group. She's 65 years old, married, and without children. But she has six children to support, entrusted to her by family members.

She sells fruits, and has a good experience in this field, since she's been running this business for several years.

This loan will enable her to bolster her working capital and better develop her activities.

The profits will enable her to improve her family's standard of living (healthcare, food, clothes, etc…) and increase her savings.

In this group: Adama, Mamae Sophie, Amy*, Mansata, Fatou, Maama, Elisabeth, Dienaba, Banna, Ouly, Sophie, Aissatou, Aramatoulaye, Amy*, Aissatou
