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).

Philip's story

Philip is 32 years old. He is single and he supports two people. He has been in the transportation business for three years, with a monthly income from the business of 16,000 Kenyan shillings (KES).

He is borrowing a loan of KES 93,000 with which he intends to purchase a motorbike. He plans to expand his business with the anticipated profit from the business.

This is his second loan, and he successfully paid his previous loan. His hopes and dreams are to purchase a pick-up.
