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).

Moses's story

Moses lives in Mariakani area of Coast Province, Kenya. He is married and has one child. He owns a retail shop, a business that he has been operating for one year. He started the business through his personal savings. He learned about Milango through friends who invited him to the group. He joined the group with the aim of accessing credit to improve his business operations. His main challenge is price fluctuations and inflation.

Moses is applying for a loan of 41,850 Kenyan shillings to buy sugar wholesale. The extra income from the loan will be added to his savings to increase it. His future plan is to expand and open a wholesale business.
