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).

Alice's story

Alice is 38 years old, and she is married to driver named Raymond. The couple have seven children, all in school and in their care. She lives together with her husband and children. The diverse household needs are met by the couple.

Alice has an elementary school education. To manage, she has been selling beauty products and hair extensions in her area for fifteen years. She gets her supplies from a town in Benin. With the goal of increasing her working capital, Alice is requesting a sixth loan from ALIDé. The previous loans were indeed paid back.
