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).

Kossivi's story

Kossivi is 27 years old and married to a homemaker. They have no children.

Kossivi has been working as a reseller since 2011. Working alone, he sells beauty products to all types of customers in a district of Lomé. He buys his merchandise in the same area. At this time, his main difficulty is a depletion of stock.

Kossivi is seeking his first loan from WAGES to buy cosmetic products. He wants to reinvest in his activity.

In the coming years, Kossivi would like to expand his business. He plans to use the profits earned to provide for his family.
