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 $725 helped to buy and insure a dairy cow.


James's story

James is a resident and a farmer in the Muranga area of Central Kenya. He is aged 50 and married with 3 children; the first two are adults. His farm produce of milk and tea go to the local market. He also gets additional income from his retail business in the local market.

James has made a loan request from Juhudi Kilimo for 63,600 KES to purchase and insure a dairy cow. He says the dairy cow will help improve the family livelihood. He intends to do intensive breeding once his dairy business is well established.

He adds the future will be great with the financial services available from Juhudi Kilimo.
