ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A St. Louis entrepreneur is working to help victims of human trafficking move on with their lives.

Dawn Manske started the program Made for Freedom, which provides people rescued from trafficking situations find work making handmade clothing and jewelry.

Missouri has already seen 74 reported cases of human trafficking this year.

The organization just qualified for Kiva, a website that allows people to invest money in businesses for a good cause.

Kiva's website reads "Make a loan to an entrepreneur across the globe for as little as $25. Kiva is the world's first online lending platform connecting online lenders to entrepreneurs across the globe."

Made for Freedom has 30 days to raise its goal of $25,000. Within 36 months, investors will be paid back for their loan.
