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 $1,200 helped to buy more local foods to cook like cassava and posho for her catering business.

Yayeri's story

Yayeri is 53 years old and lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has 5 children with 1 of them currently in school. For the past 5 years, Yayeri has been working hard to manage her catering business, where she prepares matooke, irish potatoes and cabbage.

To help expand her business, Yayeri has requested a loan of 3000000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy more local foods to cook like cassava, posho, and will help Yayeri to generate greater profits and help the borrower manage household expenses better. Yayeri hopes that in the future she will be able to continue growing her business.

Yayeri is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Yayeri who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
