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).

Judas's story

Judas, 32, is a married man with five children aged between 1 and 15. He lives in Kagadi, Uganda. Due to his passion to change his and his children's future, he started a produce business ten years ago. He has been able to build rental houses to supplement his produce business income and has also continued to do farming. He dreams of educating his children up to university level and opening up another outlet. Weather changes and bad roads affect his business. Judas intends to use this loan to buy beans and maize to sell.
