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 rechargeable phone cards and general food products.


Adjowa's story

Adjowa lives in Lomé with her husband who is an artist, and their only child, aged 18. Adjowa is 40 years old and she sells rechargeable phone cards and general food products. She likes her job because the income it brings allows her to take care of her family.

Faced with an increased demand from her customers, Adjowa can no longer meet their needs. This is why she is taking this first loan with WAGES and plans to buy rechargeable phone cards and general food products.

Adjowa wants to open a shop, since she currently works in a shed. She also wants to do her best to meet the needs of her family. She has ten years of experience in this field.
