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 $1,425 helped a member to buy maize and beans to sell.


Runyenge Gamba Nokora Group's story

Godfrey is a 26-year-old active business farmer. He is married with two children living in Kyenjojo, Uganda. He trades in produce to get income to enable him to earn a living for his family. Godfrey started this business immediately after dropping out of school as a result of school-fees failure by his parents. He buys produce from rural areas and sells to town dwellers.

Godfrey has the challenge of a small capital base as well price fluctuations and inflation, which leads to higher prices and hence, lower profits.

He has a personal goal of building a permanent home for a residence and owning a food store that can sustainably supply his customers all year round.

Godfrey intends to use the loan to buy maize and beans to sell. Some of the members in the group graduated to individual lending after accumulating enough capital, and this is the reason why there are fewer members than the previous loan cycle.
