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 $500 helped to increase her inventory of clothes and open another boutique.

Janet Ndinda's story

Janet Ndinda, aged 36 years, is a single mother of two children, Banice, aged 15 years in grade 4, and Njeri, aged 8 months. She has a boutique at Mlolongo market, which is a very busy market. She sells clothes to Mlolongo residents. She was introduced to KADET by her friends.

Janet has been running her boutique for a period of three years, and her monthly profit is Kshs 4,000. This loan of Kshs 40,000 is Janet's second loan with KADET. The first loan was paid well and in time. She plans to use Kshs 20,000 to increase her stocks of clothes for resale and Kshs 20,000 to open another boutique. If the loan boosts the business, Janet will buy food and clothing for her children, which has been a challenge in her life. She will also pay school fees for her daughter.

Janet describes herself as bright and enterprising. She dreams of building her own business premises and her own home.
