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 $1,150 helped to buy more irish potatoes and bananas.

Teddy's story

Teddy is 45 years old and lives in the town of Nateete in the Kampala East region of Uganda. She is married and has 4 children, 2 of them are currently in school. For the past 22 years, Teddy has been working hard to manage her food stall business, which sells Irish potatoes and banana.

To help expand her business, Teddy has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more irish potatoes and bananas, and will help Teddy to generate greater profits and increase her income. Teddy hopes that in the future she will be able to offer her buyers larger quantities.

Teddy is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Teddy who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
