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).

Kayi's story

Kayi is 38 years old and is a reseller. Since 2012, she has been reselling shoes and jewelry in her boutique. She usually gets her supplies at the large market and is requesting her second loan to buy merchandise. For the future, Madam Kayi hopes to introduce the sale of women's handbags and to ensure the well-being of her mother.
