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).

Cate's Group's story

Cate N. is the leader of Kayunga market group 1. She is a hard-working and devoted lady who has had a business selling fresh foods and vegetables in the market area since 1996, when her husband died. Her produce includes tomatoes, onions, cabbages, Irish potatoes, carrots, and vegetables. She is happy that she has been able to make a profit from her business. She uses the profits to pay school fees for her two children, one of whom is still at the university. Cate also helps to care for two orphans, who are also in school.



She has also been able to buy a Fresian cow that she hopes will give her milk for sale. She needs this loan to help buy maize brand for the cow and fresh produce for sale at her stall.
