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 $825 helped to purchase motorcycle spare parts and to repair his motorcycles.


Amos's story

Amos is 48 years old and a motorcycle operator in Shanzu, Mombasa. He is married and supports a family of five. He has been in this business for the last three years and has been doing great.

He will use the requested loan to repair his grounded motorcycles and open a new business for the wife. He will use the anticipated profit to repay his loan and construct some rental shops.

This is his fourth loan after repaying the previous ones successfully. He hopes to uplift his economic status.
