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 $725 helped to purchase 20 bags of charcoal for sale.

Jane's story

Jane N. is a married woman with two school going-children. They own a house that has electricity and piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees.

For the past four yeas, she has operated a charcoal-selling business. She sells from her home to her neighbors and friends. As another source of income, Jane sells second-hand clothes, and that helps her meet her family's daily needs.

She decided to join Yehu microfinance because of its good reputation. With the KES 60,000 she is requesting, she wants to purchase 20 bags of charcoal to sell.

She dreams of establishing rental houses in the future.
