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 $4,175 helped a member to buy more tea leaves for resale to supplement those grown on his plantation.

Kashozi Bahingi Twetungure Group, Bushenyi's story

K. Yosamu is the leader of his lending group in Bushenyi. He is 52 years old, married, and has three children, all in secondary education. He also takes care of two dependants, who are also in school.

Yosamu is a tea farmer from Kashozi. In order to earn a good income from his farming, he ensures that he grows good quality tea and that he increases his output. He is a hardworking and a determined man who would like to expand his farming business in order to increase his income and enable him to continue paying school fees for his children and general upkeep. Yosamu is requesting a loan to buy more tea leaves so that he is able to supply his customers since what he grows on his farm is still not enough to meet the demand of his expanding customer base.
