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 $975 helped to buy paper and a new photocopy machine.

Koffi's story

Koffi K. is 34 years old and is the married father of one child. He owns a photocopying and typing services business in Adèta, a medium-sized town located about 150 kilometers from Lomé, the capital of Togo. As most people in his area do not own computers or copy machines or know how to type, his services are often in demand and keep him very busy.

With this loan, Koffi hopes to buy another photocopy machine, as his current one can barely keep up with his workload. He also wishes to buy a few reams of paper. Koffi hopes that with this loan he will be able to satisfy the demands of his customers and to use the revenue from his business to pay for his child’s schooling.
