We envision a world where all people hold the power to create opportunity for themselves and others. We believe lending alongside thousands of others is one of the most powerful and sustainable ways to create economic and social good. Since 2014, MAKIDADA has been lending on Kiva to create a partnership of mutual dignity and make it easier to touch more lives with the same dollar. We start by funding a loan, getting repaid, and then fund another. We NEVER withdraw ANY monies we donate, but we do just RELEND the repayments. We believe that it is important for you to know that you are buying from a socially conscious company that is always evolving to find ways to "give back." Lending through Kiva is one of our many avenues whereby we participate in helping to create opportunities for those of African descent. Here at MAKIDADA, your purchase is a contribution to the greater good of African peoples globally.
Whether you lend to friends in your community, or people halfway around the world (and for many, it’s both), Kiva creates the opportunity to play a special part in someone else's story. When a Kiva loan enables someone to grow a business and create opportunity for themselves, it creates opportunities for others as well. That ripple effect can shape the future for a family or an entire community.
