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).

Robert's story

Robert is a 28-year-old married man with three children living in Fort Portal, Uganda. He owns a tea plantation, which he started seven years ago. He started as a casual labourer, then he devoted knowledge and capital to start his own plantation. His challenges are price fluctuations, customers not paying on time and seasonal weather. His dreams are to educate his children, build a permanent home, buy a car, diversify the business and hire employees to help him expand his business. Robert intends to buy tea seedlings for planting.
