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).

Margaret's story

Margaret does farming in Olkalau town, where she plants and sells cash crops such as potatoes, maize and beans. She is 48 years old and married to Obadia, who is also a farmer. They have six children.

This will be her second loan amount, and she plans to buy fertilizer and pesticides to use in her farm during this planting season.

She hopes to improve her farming methods and make more income so as to improve the living standards of her family.
