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 a new engine.


Souleye's story

Soulèye is a young married father of two. He has worked as a taxi driver for three years, and this business allows him to meet his family’s needs. Sadly, his taxi has broken down, and he cannot correctly provide for his family’s expenses.

Soulèye has therefore requested a loan of 500,000 francs to buy a new engine. His ambition is to replace all his taxi’s internal parts.
