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).

Bakari's story

Bakari is from the city of Mombasa. He’s a merchant. He has 1 year of experience working in his store. He is a very hardworking, enterprising person who always strives to the maximum degree to be able to help his family members and to give them everything they need to have a life with no privations or unmet needs.

Bakari is asking for the loan to stock his store with beverages, canned goods, baked goods, and other items so that it is well-stocked. He is grateful for the support Yehu Microfinance and Kiva give him.
