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 $250 helped to purchase seedlings and fertilizer for his farm.


Richard's story

Richard is a 39-year-old mixed crop farmer. He is a divorced man with two children. He has been in the farming business for the past six years with the monthly income of KES. 20,900, which he uses to support his children.

He is applying for his first loan term from KADET LTD after being introduced by an existing KADET customer. Richard will use the loan to purchase seedlings and fertilizer for his farm.

With the anticipated profit from the business, he will buy a dairy cow. His hopes and dreams are to educate his children up to university level and improve the family’s living standard.
