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 $525 helped to buy farm inputs.


Sirote's story

Sirote is a very hard-working woman who practices mixed farming. She has been in this business for over five years and earns a monthly profit of KES 5,000. She is 26 years old, married, with one child.


She has been a good client and is applying for her second loan. She plans to use a part of the loan amount to buy farm inputs and the other to use in her business.

She intends to use the additional income from the proceeds of this loan to buy cattle for fattening and to pay her children's school fees. She hopes to develop her business and to be financially stable in the future.
