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 $600 helped buy merchandise to sell.


Kennedy's story

Kennedy is asking for a new loan to buy additional merchandise to sell such as bread, biscuits, soap, shampoo, and flour. Thanks to his efforts where he has successfully operated a motorcycle service, this has allowed him to have enough saving to open a retail shop. He says that he is still in his motorcycle business.

Kennedy is optimistic that if the loan is granted, he will be able to improve his store and attract more customers and buyers, which will improve his sales and profit. Since the previous loan, his living standards have greatly improved.
