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).

Koffi's story

Koffi is a 43-year-old man. He is married to a retailer and the mother of 4 children who all attend school. The eldest child is 17 years old and the youngest, 10. He has run a gardening business since 1995 and is assisted by 8 people. Koffi would like to use his second loan to buy equipment, grains, seeds and fertilizer, so that he has a good harvest. The profit he makes from his sales will be used to expand his field and take care of his children's education.
