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 $1,125 helped to buy poultry feed for the chicks, to increase egg production.


Joan's story

Joan lives in the town of Mukono in the Mukono region of Uganda. She is married and has two children who are currently in school. For the past 15 years, Joan has been working hard to manage her poultry business, selling eggs and chicken.

To help expand her business, Joan has requested a loan of 3,000,000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy poultry feed for the chicks, to get better eggs. This will help Joan generate greater profits, increase the stock, and grow the business.

Joan hopes that in the future she will be able to have a big business .

Joan is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs, like Joan, who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans, but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
