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 $825 helped to repair his rickshaw.

Isaac's story

Isaac is 37 years old from Nakuru. He is married to Seraphine who is a business lady and they are blessed with two children aged six and three years old.

He is in the transport sector where he operates a rickshaw, and this business has been in operation for the last five years. Isaac has applied for his first loan of KES 70,000 from KADET Ltd. which will be used to repair his rickshaw so as to be able to offer better services to his customers.

His monthly income right now is KES 15,000 and he intends to use profits from his expanded business to educate his children and pay back his loan to KADET Ltd.

He has dreams and hopes of building rental houses in the future on a plot he owns.
