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).

Mugoma Women’S Group's story

Grace S., the leader of Mugoma Women’s Group, is 38 years old and married with seven children and six additional dependents who all attend school. She has been in the business of selling cassava flour for over six months. She will use the loan to increase and expand her business by purchasing four or five bags of cassava flour to resell. This will enable her to earn more profits and educate her children. She is a very hardworking woman and she encourages her fellow women to work hard. Her dream for the future is to see her children become well-educated.
