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).

Kanga's story

Kanga, 41, is married to Mwalimu. They have two children and they live in downtown Samburu.

Kanga has had a boutique for more than ten years in a strategically located spot in the village of Samburu. She sells assorted articles of clothing, such as shirts, t-shirts, sandals and belts, for cash and on credit. Thanks to her sacrifice she’s getting ahead and also helping her husband with everyday expenses.

She’s asking for the loan to increase her stock of clothing, because sales always increase starting mid-year, and she wants to be prepared in the best way possible to provide her customers with quality and variety of clothes.
