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).

Isabella's story

For ten years, Isabella has been in the farming business, including cash crops and poultry keeping, supporting her family on a monthly income of 15,000 Kenyan Shillings (KES). She is applying for her fifth loan of KES. 100,000 with KADET LTD after repaying the previous loans successfully. Isabella will use this loan to purchase seedlings and fertilizer for her farm, so as to improve her cash crops. With the anticipated profit from the business, Isabella will educate her children. Her hopes and dreams are to export her farm produce and improve the family's living standard.
