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).

Josephine's story

Josephine is a 34-year-old business woman. She is married to Michael, a business man, and they are blessed with three children aged 21, 16, and four years.

Josephine has been a hawker for the past four years, earning a monthly income of 10,000 KES, which she uses to support her family. She is applying for her second loan from KADET LTD after repaying the previous loan successfully. Josephine will use the loan to buy belts, watches, flashlights, and albums.

With the anticipated profit from the loan, she intends to educate her children. She also hopes to open a retail shop in the future.
