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).

Joy's Group's story

K. Joy is the leader of her lending group in Kampala. She is a married lady with 3 children all in secondary school as she takes care of other orphans. Joy has a stationery shop business on Kampala road that has been in existence for 9 years and she is able to make 100,000/= as profits a week. Her major challenge is the lack of enough capital to boost her stationery shop since she has the good customer care skills for a successful business. She also hopes to have a successful and healthy home. Joy needs a loan to help increase her stock by buying more new books and other stationery. She is such a friendly and hard working lady.
