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 $2,025 helped a member to purchase additional merchandise for her shop.

Tweyambe Batuyambe Group, Mpigi's story

It’s been one-and-a-half years since K. Prossy began her small retail shop in Bukakala, Mpigi. Her startup story is fascinating: with only two bars of soap, this young, 26-year-old woman began her sugar, soap and food retail shop.

Prossy’s reliable stock in trade at the start was her welcoming nature and she was able to strike a chord with most of her clients. As a result she has been able to consolidate her minimal 10,000 shillings a week. She also sells art crafts to supplement her profits.

With this loan, Prossy wants to buy more merchandise for her shop.
