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 $300 helped to purchase additional clothes for resale purposes.

John's story

John is a 40-year-old married man with three children. He owns a house in Kasese, Uganda. He has been a teacher for 14 years. After realizing that his meager teacher's salary did not allow him to fully provide for his family, he ventured into the clothing business, and he has been in the business for a year.

His primary business challenge relates to the fact that he has limited funds to meet the high demand for his clothing. His dream is to set up a boutique and to educate his children. John is seeking this loan to buy clothes for resale purposes.
