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).

Serphine's story

Serphine is 36 years old and is married. She runs a boutique in Mikindani, Mombasa, a business that has been in operation for the last three years.

Serphine has been a KADET client and this marks her second borrowing to finance her business. With this loan, she plans to purchase bales of clothes and shoes to sell in her business. The anticipated profits will be used to repay the loan and to support her family. Her dream is to own several outlets in the future.
