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).

Akpabal Group's story

AKPABAL is an all-men solidarity group located in Togo’s central region. The group’s president is N’Tanki, a 53-year-old farmer who is married to a homemaker. They have six children aged 25 to 32, four of whom have received schooling.

N’Tanki grows maize for sale. He has been practicing this activity in the central region since the 70s, and he has three family members and five employees to help him.

Having recently heard of WAGES, N'Tanki is seeking his first loan to purchase farming equipment. In the long term, he plans to expand his cultivable area and build a new house.

The other group members are also maize farmers who aim to expand their cultivable land.

In this group: N'tanki, Messan, Koffi, Kodjovi, Kodjo, Boni, Komi, Yao, Yao, Donko, Kossivi, Kokou
