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).

Tony's story

Tony is 29 years old and single. He is in the cereals business and has been in operation for the last three years, earning KES 7,000 monthly. This is Tony’s first loan of KES 20,000. He will use it to purchase dry beans and maize for resale. With the anticipated profits, he plans to use it on finishing the rental houses he had started constructing. His hope is that he’ll be independent financially.
