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 $625 helped to purchase and insure a dairy cow.


Beatrice's story

Beatrice is a married mother of four children who all attend school. She is a farmer from the town of Kitale in western Kenya where she has been farming for seven years. Her mixed farm produces maize, bananas, vegetables, milk and sweet potatoes, which are all sold locally. She is also a teacher at a nearby local school.

Beatrice has requested this loan of 52,000 KES through Kiva partner Juhudi Kilimo to purchase and insure a dairy cow. The extra income from the sale of milk will help boost her family's living standards. She hopes to own a pick-up for transporting milk in the next five years.
