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 children's clothing to resell.


Fatou's story

Fatou is a shopkeeper who sells children's clothing. She gets her supplies wholesale in the large markets of the capital and resells her merchandise retail in her locale. Her business brings in fairly consistent revenue which allows her to meet her own needs but also those of her children.

In order to strengthen her business, she is requesting a loan of 500,000f to buy children's clothing.
