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 $500 helped to buy seeds and fertilizer for planting.


John Kinyua's story

John is 29 years old. He is married to Faith and together they have two children. He is a farmer and has been in the business for the past three years.

This is his third term loan. He repaid his previous loans well and in good time. He will use the loan to buy seeds and fertilizer for planting.

In the future, John hopes to practice farming in a more profitable way, such as by using technology to increase his yield.
