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).

Ahonon's story

Ahanon is a young saleswoman who has no children and who lives in Lomé. Ahanon started her business 10 years ago. She sells pagnes (traditional wrap arounds) and food out of her home. She would like to increase her inventory in order to grow her business. It's with this goal in mind that she is asking for a second loan with WAGES. Ahanon hopes that the revenue from her business will allow her to open a boutique and be financially independent.
