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).

Morine's story

Morine is a single mother of three children living in Hioma, Uganda. She is the only breadwinner in the family. She lives in a rented home and her family goal is to buy a house for her children.

For three years Morine has been running a beauty salon business that she started from savings she had made from selling food items. She faces the challenge of customers who don’t pay. Her business dream is to own a beauty parlor.

Morine needs the loan to buy synthetic hair and hair sprays for her salon.
