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 $425 helped to purchase ingredients for her kenkey in bulk.


Asi's story

Asi is married and has four children. Her husband is a farmer.

Asi sells kenkey (akin to a sourdough dumpling) at Mbeam near Abura, which she has done for six years. Asi uses her income to care for her children and pay other household expenses.

Asi will use the loan to purchase ingredients for her kenkey in bulk. With the new profits from her expanded business, Asi plans to continue to expand her business and care for her family.
