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).

Rhulangani Group's story

Chantal is the president of Rhulangani Group. She is an entrepreneur, 43-years old, married, and mother of seven children. Her spouse is a government employee. Chantal is a seller of corn and manioc flour. She started her business with her own funds that she she received from her husband. Later, she received additional funds via an IMF Hakima loan. She has been in business for 11 years. This new loan will enable her to buy four bags of semolina in Rwanda. The problem of transportation is a major challenge for her business. She wants her children to attend school and to increase her capital. Lastly, she thanks Hekima for their support via microcredit.
