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).

Solon's story

Solon is 43 years old, married and blessed with two children aged six and 11 years old. He has run a Christian bookshop for the last year; it earns him a monthly income of 30,000 KES.

With a loan of 35,000 KES from KADET LTD, he plans to restock his shop with a variety of Christian books and tapes for sale.

The anticipated profits will be ploughed back into business for expansion. His future dream is to be successful in life
