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).

A loan of $375 helped to purchase additional food items (meat, sugar, flour, and rice) for his businesses.

Nelson's story

Nelson is a 31-year-old man. He is married to Jane.

To earn a living, he runs a butcher shop and a food kiosk, which have been in business for five years. The businesses enable him to earn approximately 31,900 KES per month.

This would be his first loan from KADET, and he plans to use the proceeds to purchase more meat for the butcher shop and sugar, flour, and rice for the food kiosk. He also plans to use the anticipated profits he expects to generate from the businesses as a result of the loan to expand his retail shop. In the future, he hopes to be able to open another branch of the butcher shop and additional food kiosks in other areas.
