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).

He has a high customer demand because of his good services. Therefore, he has employed two people to help him serve his customers.

Samuel appreciates Express Soweto group under Faulu Kenya where he is a member. This is because he has been saving his money with the group on weekly basis.
