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).

Nkonya Nezikokolima Farmers Group's story

M. Stephen is a 37-year-old gentleman who derives his livelihood from a fish sales business in Nkonya Landing in Mityana. This happily married father of 9 says he inherited this business from his father. Before that, he says farming was his major preoccupation. He still does farming and says he still harvests and sells most of the crops he grows. Weekly, he says this business generates for him 90,000 Ugandan shillings in profit. Stephen says he is asking for this loan to purchase fishing nets and manure for his farm gardens.

In this group: Stephen, Cissy, Tadeo, Harriet, Grace, Mathias, Rustico, Emmanuel, Paul, Charles
