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.

Kyabyakwaga Tukore Of Kyenjojo District Group's story

In a certain small Kyenjojo town called Kyabyakwaga is a flourishingly retail shop operated by a 39-year-old go-getter businesswoman who goes by the name of T. Edisa. This stickler for hard work, and also the mother of four, has basked in the checkered career graces of her business for the last eleven years. With this experience behind her, she has managed to subdue most of the uncertain adversities that have threatened to play havoc with her retail business.

In a month Edisa’s business generates her 25,000 shillings. This, to all intents and purposes, is a low figure. What has played into her hands as she operates her business has been her exceptional customer relationship skills. As it is now, she is taking a long view with the aim of maximizing her small profits. She figures this loan will come in significantly handy in helping her buy more stock.
