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 $1,000 helped to purchase frozen products to sell.


Adjowa's story

To help out her husband (an aluminum furniture maker) to cover household expenses, Adjowa started off by selling frozen products in 2012. Lacking the funds to purchase her merchandise, she is requesting financial aid from WAGES with an initial loan. This money will enable her to purchase frozen products.

For the future, she hopes to purchase another refrigerator and to ensure that her family's needs are met. Let us note that she is a mom with two adorable children in school who are 7 and 5 years old.
