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 and his wife, Milliecent Anchieng, have four daughters and two sons between the ages of four and 16 years old. The family lives in the town of Migori.

James wants to buy a new motorbike, the purchase of which will create an employment opportunity for one person, and he needs to do maintanance on the old motorbike. For these reasons, James has applied for a loan of Kshs 80,000 from KADET Ltd. This will be his second loan.
