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).

Kabowa Mixed Farmers Group - Jinja's story

Bashiri B. has been in a commercial motorcycle business for six years. He has relied on profits from this business to shoulder most of his family’s responsibilities. On the basis of that, he has no regrets on why he began this business. As of now, he is only looking at ways of getting or buying more motorcycles, which he envisions will bring him more profits.

With this loan, Bashiri, who is a single father of six, is optimistic his dreams will come to pass. With more motorcycles, he says he will be able to add onto the 100,000 shillings he makes in a week with just one bike. He says that before this business, he was a security guard and it is because of his hard work and determination that he is where he is right now.
