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 $3,475 helped a member to buy 3 sacks of maize.


Mulangane Group's story

Luseka is a merchant and member of the business group Mulangane. A 47-year-old entrepreneur, she is married with six children; four of them are in school and two are grown up. Her husband is a security guard.

Luseka sells maize. She conducts her sales from her home; she runs a depot in a local district. She has been engaged in this activity for 2 years, and she initially started with funding from Hekima.

Luseka plans to use this loan to buy 3 sacks of maize. Her goals are to bolster her capital, buy a house, and ensure that her children are fed, clothed, and educated.

Luseka wishes to thank Hekima for helping women entrepreneurs who cannot use the traditional banking system in their efforts to become self-sufficient, especially in these difficult post-war times in the Eastern region.
