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 $625 helped to buy chicks to raise and resell.

Abdourahmane's story

Abdourahmane has been a schoolteacher for over ten years. He is married and a father of three. He works from 8am to 6pm; in his free time, he takes care of the chicks that he is raising. This supplementary activity allows him to make ends meet and to take care of his family.

With the money loaned, he will be able to purchase 150 chicks and the feed they will need to fatten.

Abdourahmane wants to grow his chicken-raising business, increase the number of his animals, and become a major provider of meat chicken for hotels, restaurants, and hospitals.
