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).

Lamouratou's story

Lamouratou is a reseller of cosmetic products and women's accessories in a market; she is married to a chauffeur and has 4 children, two of whom attend school.

She often faces being completely out of stock, and so Lamouratou is requesting her first loan with WAGES in order to purchase the items for her business in a larger quantity. She would also like to expand her display stall and to provide for the needs of her family.
