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).

Memunatu's story

A married mother, Memunatu is 40 years old with four children, ages 13 years to 23 years. She runs a clothing enterprise in Jui Eastern area in Freetown. Her children are going to school. She began this business because she wants to generate her own income to support the home.

She's been in this business for 10 years and sells shirts, blouses, jeans, and cosmetics. She says that despite the challenges, she is a very hardworking woman and desires to educate her children.

Memunatu requested this loan through BRAC Sierra Leone to purchase a variety of shirts, blouses, jeans, and cosmetics. She says that the extra resulting income will help her to increase her business and educate her children. In the future, she would like to expand to a wholesale store. She is grateful for your support.
