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 $2,750 helped a member to buy goods for his shop (rice, beans, palm oil,...) to resell for profit.


Karurama Group's story

Rémy is a member of the Karurama group and lives in Cibitoke. He is 39 years old and is married to Elisabeth, a farmer. Together they have four children, aged 1 to 14; two of which go to school.

Rémy has been running a shop ([selling] rice, beans, palm oil...) for 4 years.

He is on his fifth loan with Turame. And with this Kiva-financed loan he's going to increase his capital and buy goods (rice, beans, palm oil,...) to resell for profit.

In the next few years, he would like to buy a plot of land and see his children go to school.

In this group: Esperance, Jacqueline, Antoinette, Remy, Alexandre
