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 $300 helped to buy and raise pigs.


Akuété's story

Akuété Lazare A. was born in 1977 in Logodomé (Vo Prefecture). Married and the father of three children, he works in the areas of agriculture and livestock to earn an income.

He is also a cabinet-maker. It should be said that Mr. A. is very energetic and full of initiative. Having found that raising pigs generates a lot of income in his area, he is requesting a loan to buy some and raise them.

Realizing this project will enable him to improve his income and the living conditions of his family.
