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 $375 helped to buy phone credit.

Fidele Rosaline's story

Fidèle is a young 24-year old Cameroonian. She is the single mother of a 5-year old girl who attends school. She has owned and run a kiosk in a part of the city for six years. She sells phone credit, cookies, and candy. Dynamic and welcoming, she thinks that her inventory of phone cards is already insufficient for her growing number of customers. The loan she is requesting will enable her to buy phone credit wholesale from suppliers (wholesalers of Orange and MTN, two local phone companies). The expected profits will enable her to increase her capital and to have a mini-kiosk as well as take care of the needs of her family.
