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 $700 helped to buy more stationery.


Adam's story

This is 37-year-old Adam. He is married and has two children, aged 8 and 2 years. In 2000, Adam established his stationery business. He began his business as a means of generating revenue. Working six days a week and 10 hours a day, he earns about 750,000 SLL (Sierra Leone leones) every month from this business.

He would like a loan in the amount of 3,000,000 SLL. He requires a loan in order to buy more stationery. He hopes that this loan will enable him to increase his monthly profits by approximately 500,000 SLL. In the future, Adam plans to open an outlet. He thanks you for your support.
