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 $850 helped to buy stationery.

Philomena Wawira's story

Philomena is a 34 year old married woman. She has 2 children ages 2 and 10. She describes herself as open minded and a go getter.

She operates a computer services business where she offers photocopying, printing and other secretarial services to local people. She has been involved in this business for 5 years and employs 2 staff members. Her business is located in a shopping center.

Philomena says her biggest business challenge is financial constraints. She will use the Kes 85000 loan to add to her stock of stationery. Her business goal is to grow her business and provide employment to other people within 5 years.

She hopes that in the future, she will be a renowned business lady.
