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).

Yawo Mawusi's story

Yawo Mawusi D., age 42, is a reputable mechanic who provides quality service in a district in the capital city of Lomé. To do oil changes for his customers, he must go back and forth looking for motor oil, and that is an added burden. He would like to use this first FECECAV loan to include, along with his mechanic's offerings, commerce in motor oil in order to serve his customers well, all the while making a reasonable profit. He will then help improve his family's living conditions.
