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).

Amévi's story

Amevi is 35 years old; he lives in Lome with his wife and children, who are between three and fifteen years of age. The two oldest children go to school. Amevi’s wife works in retail.
Amevi also is in retail: for nine years, he has been purchasing and reselling auto parts, notably batteries. These days, he employs two persons in his store.
Amevi is requesting a loan from Wages to increase his stock of spare parts. His plan is to use the profit to build a third store. He is hoping that revenues from his business will allow him to send his children to school.
