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 $775 helped a member to purchase farming equipment and products.


Solissaman Group's story

Mr. Tchamtcha is a farmer and father of three adorable children aged 4 to 11, two of whom attend school. With 17 years of experience, he has a good command of his activity. Three people assist him in his work. This is his second loan cycle, and he will use the funds to buy farming-related products.

He conducts his activity in the center of the region. He is the leader of the group SOLISSAMAN, which consists of men and women who all work with the land. The loan they are seeking will allow them to purchase farming equipment.

Their goals are to provide for their children’s healthcare and education, to increase their farmable area to better meet customer demand, and to eventually export their products.

In this group: Tchamtcha, Essowé-M'habinou, Mazalou, Mébinesso, Hodalo
