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).

Rgiatu's story

Rgiatu is 50 years old and married; she has three children, ages 17 years to 27 years. She runs a general store business in front of her house, in Moriba town, BO.

She's been in this business for 15 years and sells rice, salt, butter and milk to earn a living. As an old woman, she started this business to generate a permanent source of income. She says her business is doing well. The profit from it helps her to take care of herself.

Rgiatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone, to buy more rice, salt, butter and milk. She says that the extra income from this loan will help her increase her business and improve her living. She would like to build a big shop in the future. She is grateful for your support.
