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).

Edith's story

N. Edith has, for the last five years, been running her salon business in Mulago, Kampala. What has been winning for her in terms of attracting customers in the course of these years has been her good line of conduct.

For this married mother of four, having a well-educated family is a top priority. With profits from her business, she has strained every nerve to do this. In a month, she earns 450,000 shillings as profits and, with this loan, she is anticipating a favorable turn in her current circumstances as she carries conviction she will be able to buy new equipment like weavers for her saloon.
