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).

David's story

David runs a tailoring business in Nyahururu town and has been in the business for the past 12 years. He is 58 years of age and married to Rebekah, and they have child who is 10 years old.

This is his first loan and he plans to use this loan amount to buy more materials for sewing. He will also sell some of the materials, especially fabric materials, to his tailoring traders and customers. Being a festive season, this will enable him to meet the high demands of his customers as well as satisfy their needs and make more profit.

He hopes to expand his business by opening another tailoring business in Nyahururu town.
