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).

Aida's Group's story

This group was created in 2011. The members live in the same area and they are in the business of selling vegetables and groundnuts. Aida, standing at the right of photo with her arm raised, is the representative. She is 27 years old, married, and mother of two girls. She sells vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, and groundnuts. With the loan, she plans to buy vegetables, potatoes, pears, carrots for 25,000 francs and groundnuts for 50,000 francs. Her goal is to help her husband buy food and take care of their family's needs, such as school fees and children's healthcare.
