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 $1,325 helped to purchase more roofing poles to sell.


Kasul's story

Kasul, 35, lives in Juba, South Sudan. He is married and has five children between the ages of two and nine years, four of whom go to school.


Kasul has been selling roofing poles for the past six years. He has one employee. Presently, Kasul’s major challenge is the low cost of housing construction versus the high cost of construction materials in Juba. Aside from this business, he has no other source of income.


Kasul heard about Finance Sudan through the office’s market outreach and promotion. He is taking a loan of 3500 SDG to purchase more roofing poles to sell. In five years time Kasul would like to realize growth in his business and to have better houses to rent as well.


Kasul wishes to thank those who financially support South Sudan. He hopes Finance Sudan will continue with its program.
