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 $1,025 helped to build an additional bedroom in his home.

Aliou's story

Mr. Aliou is a resident of Senegal. He is married and active in the gardening sector, where he has worked for 22 years. He is a member of a U-IMCEC branch, where he has already honored his commitments relative to four loans he had obtained. Presently, he is requesting a loan of 500,000 francs CFA with the goal of building an additional bedroom in his home. The revenues that his garden business generates enable him to cover his family's day-to-day expenses, as well as to pay the bills. Furthermore, this loan will enable him to improve his family's living conditions. His future project is to develop his own firm specializing in developing green spaces.
