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).

Koffi Mensah Edem's story

Mr. Koffi Mensah Edem Z., 27, is single and has no children. He was not able to stay at school for long. He got into commerce at a young age and began work in 2002. Events led him to open a drinks depot in a busy corner of his neighborhood. His business soon began to prosper.



He often finds himself out of certain items. Thus, he needs this, his first loan to add to his inventory by buying 50 cases of beer.
