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 $475 helped to buy more mattresses for re-sale.

Mwamvumbo's story

Mwamvumbo, 43, is married and has six children. He lives with all of his family in Tiribe which is in Coast Province, Kenya. Mwamvumbo describes himself as a tranquil, unassuming person with a desire for self-improvement.

He works as a retailer and sells mattresses. This is the second loan he has asked for from Yehu. He will use it to buy more mattresses which will help him increase his merchandise and meet his customer demands. This business helps Mwamvumbo to increase his income which helps him support his family. His dream is to stay in business with his family and, in the future, be able to open more businesses.
