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 $4,400 helped a member the purchase of a cow.

Kyabagyenyi Tukwatanise Group-Ibanda's story

B. N. is a hard-working married father of four children who carries out several agricultural practices including cattle-keeping where he gets products like milk and ghee to sell. He also looks after a banana plantation. All this earns him 120,000 Ugandan shillings on a monthly basis that helps him to support his family.

Having inherited some cows from his father, he feels it worthwhile to go ahead and purchase more cows and restock the farm. Therefore he is very hopeful that this loan will help him buy a cow for farm expansion. This will earn him more sales revenue from the agricultural produce. He belongs to 'Kyabagyenyi Tukwatanise' group of Ibanda.
