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 $875 helped buy cattle for his butcher shop.


Peter's story

Peter, aged thirty-two, is a married man with three children living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. He runs a butcher shop and also owns a retail shop which he has had for the last five years. He started by buying and reselling goats and after accumulating enough savings he ventured into his current businesses. He has dreams of buying a refrigerator for storing meat and of educating his children. Peter wants a loan to buy more cattle for his butcher shop.
