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 $150 helped to buy more clothing material to expand her business.


Isha's story

Meet 35-year-old Isha from Waterloo Western rural area in Freetown. She is married with 3 children. Her children are currently attending school. In 2011, Isha established her clothing business. She began her business because she needs to create income to support the home. She works at the business 12 hours per day and 7 days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is lack of enough capital to run her business.

Isha requires a loan in order to buy more clothing material to expand her business. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to increase her business and have a permanent business location. In the future, Isha plans to own a big shop. She thanks you for your support.
