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 $925 helped to buy better breeds of cattle for his livestock business.


George's story

George would like a loan to buy better breeds of cattle for his livestock business. He is 65 years old and is married with eleven children.

With pension money, George started his livestock marketing and hardware business after he had retired from formal employment with the civil service. He lives in Kyenjojo, Uganda and owns the house in which he lives.

George dreams of acquiring a milk-processing plant which he says can be very profitable, given the fact that there is no other local milk processor in his area.
