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 $250 helped to buy insulated material for making garments.

Judith's story

Judith, 26, says that she is a happy, hard-working, and entrepreneurial person. She lives with her 4-year-old daughter in Kisauni.

Judith makes and sells garments for a living in a small tailoring workshop. She has loyal customers and can sell everything that she makes. She has orders that she has to fill, and she will use this loan to buy insulated material for making garments. The investment will allow her to meet the demand from her customers and grow her business. The happier her customers are, she says, the better her income and, in turn, her and her daughter's quality of life.

Judith hopes to grow her business and continue providing for her daughter, who is her motivation to work hard.
