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).

Wilson's story

Wilson is a 40 year old man who lives in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He is married and has seven children who are all of school-going age. He has a bar which he has been running for six years. With the proceeds, he has been able to pay school fees for his children and buy land. Wilson is mainly challenged with price fluctuations, seasonal weather changes and inadequate capital to purchase enough drinks for his customers. His personal goals are to educate his children and build a permanent home for the family. His business goals are to hire employees to help expand the business, to move the business to a more permanent location and to expand into new market areas. The purpose of this loan is to buy more beer and soft drinks to sell.
