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 $1,175 helped to buy more office supplies.

Maxwell M's story

This is 30-year-old Maxwell. He is single and has no children. In 2007, Maxwell established an office supply business. He began his business because he dropped out of school through a lack of sponsorship. He joined his uncle's business, and after some years his uncle gave him some money to start selling shoes. He maintained the business for some time and later changed the business to stationery.

Working seven days a week and 12 hours a day, he earns about Le 2,500,000 every month. He would like a loan of Le 5,000,000. He requires a loan to buy A4 paper, cartridges, office trays, paper files, and ledger books for Le 4,800,000, and the balance of Le200,000 will be used for transport.

In the future, Maxwell plans to become a supplier, build a house, buy a car and open different outlets. This loan will help to develop his business. He is a hardworking business man. He thanks you for your support
