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).

He would like a loan in the amount of Le 3,000,000. Ibrahim requires a loan in order to buy bundles of used clothing. He hopes that this loan will help increase his income level.
