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).

Kadidiatou's Group's story

This group was created in December of 2010. Its members all come from the same area and are retailers. Noudje, on the right of the picture and raising her arm, is the group leader. She is 37 years old, married and the mother of 2 children. She sells "wax" fabric, shoes and clothing. She plans to use her loan to buy 150 000 francs worth of fabric, 100 000 francs worth of shoes and 100 000 francs worth of clothing. Her goal is to build her savings and enough working capital with which to open a shop.
