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 $700 helped to buy groundnuts.

Fatmata A.'s story

This is 38-year-old Fatmata. She is married and has three children aged 18, 15 and 13 years, all of whom are in school. She has two additional dependents who live with her to be fostered. In 2002, Fatmata established her groundnuts business. She began her business because she was unprivileged to attend school. She used to assist her mother in business. When she became mature, her mother gave her some amount of money to start a business. Working 7 days a week and 11 hours a day, she earns about SLL 825,000 every month from this business. She would like a loan in the amount of SLL 3,000,000. Fatmata requires a loan in order to buy groundnuts. In the future, Fatmata plans to build another house, educate her children and acquire a store. This loan will help to improve the business. She thanks you for your support.
