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 $600 helped to buy a toolbox.


Anani's story

Anani is 52 years old and father of five children, all of whom have received schooling. He is married to a retailer.

He is a mechanic by trade and has been repairing large vehicles in his workshop since 1968. In order to avoid the competition that he is sometimes confronted with, he is seeking a loan from WAGES to buy a toolbox so that he can better satisfy his clients' needs.

With the profits, he wants to expand his business and ensure a good education for his family.
