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).

Yesu Anaweza Group's story

This client, Beatrice, is the president of the loan group Yesu Anaweza. She is 34 years old, married, and the mother of six children, who are all in school. Her husband is a software engineer. This client is the owner of a store and works in general commerce. She started with a Hekima loan. She just completed three cycles in the micro-loan program. The major challenge for her is meager capital. This new loan must serve to supply her with 25 kg of rice, 5 kg of Omo, 25 kg of sugar, salt, etc. She would like to grow her enterprise. So she thanks Hekima for thinking about small-scale entrepreneurs.
