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).

Ryabatenga Twimukye Tukore Group's story

Amanya, who is squatting in the photograph, is a 36-year-old married man who lives in Kamwenge, Uganda. He is a member of the abovementioned group where each person guarantees the other in accessing a loan. He has personal goals of educating his children, building a permanent house and buying a car. Amanya has been a farmer for the last 15 years after starting with ten local breeds of goats. Currently he has 20 rare breed goats.
Amanya faces the hardships of price fluctuations, seasonal weather variations and inadequate capital to purchase drugs for the animals. His vision is to diversify his business to include cattle rearing, buying land to grow crops, and hiring employees to help him expand his business. Amanya intends to use his loan to buy drugs to vaccinate his goats and pay school fees for his children.
