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 purchase more clothes.


Caroline's story

Caroline was able to restock her business with more second-hand clothes. Part of the money also went towards the payment of her children's school fees. Inflation posed the greatest threat to her business. Even then, Caroline has been able to meet her family needs and is intending to apply for another loan in the near future. She is asking for a loan of 41,850 Kenya shillings to purchase additional stock of clothes for sale.
