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).

Katerera Farmers, Bushenyi Group's story

M. Vasita, aged 52, is hard working and determined. She has worked tirelessly in her five-year-old produce business that trades in beans, millet, maize, coffee and other food crops in Nyamirima trading centre, Bushenyi. Her strong work ethic has gotten her far, as her business currently generates 320,000 Ugandan shillings per month. The married mother of three M. began her business with her own savings and has trouble meeting the demand in the area. With this loan, she looks forward to buying more produce which will increase her sales revenue and enable her to meet her family expenses.
