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).

Veronica A's story

Greetings from Sierra Leone! This is 29-year-old Veronica from Lunsar in the Northern area. She is married and has 2 children between the ages of 2 and 7. She did not go to school and she got married at an early age.

Veronica runs a general store from her house where she sells cigarettes, batteries, soap and sardines. She has been running this business for the past 10 years. She works at the business throughout the week from morning to night. Veronica says that at present her business is doing well.

Veronica has requested a loan in order to buy pure water, soap, batteries and drinks. The extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and take care of her family's welfare. In the future, she plans to open another shop. She thanks you for your support!
