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 build a business structure of her own.


Mary's story

Mary's business has continued to witness growth. She was able to complete the repayment of her previous loan on time and is applying for a new loan of 99,600 Kenyan shillings to build a business structure of her own. She no longer wants to continue renting her business premises. She believes the savings from the rental payments and the income from the same business which she has run for some time will help in her loan repayment. Her ambition is to steer the business toward becoming a wholesale shop.
