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).

Wilson's story

Wilson is married with four children, one of whom is in school. He is a resident of Malindi, Kenya. For over the past ten years, Wilson has been selling fruits and vegetables. He has also invested in the transportation industry and owns a motorcycle which transports people and goods within Malindi town. Wilson was introduced to Milango by his friends. His main business challenges are inflation and price fluctuations.

Wilson is requesting a 62,700 KES loan to purchase additional stock of onions, tomatoes, potatoes, avocadoes, and other items to sell at his market. He currently rents a market stall and his ambition is to build a permanent business premise. Wilson believes the income from his loan will help improve his family's living standard. He will also be able to purchase another motorcycle and believes that in future he can buy a three-wheeler, commonly referred to as a “tuk tuk.”
