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 spare parts for automobiles.


Arouna's story

Mister Arouna is the father of 3 children who all go to school. His spouse is a reseller. In order to meet the needs of the family, he has been selling automobile spare parts in a shop since 2004. To face competition, he is requesting a first loan from WAGES in order to buy spare parts. For future prospects, he wants to expand his business while ensuring the future of his family.
