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).

Kwagalana Group's story

Annet is a 25-year-old single mother who started a hairdressing business in Nansana, a suburb of Kampala, after dropping out of school when her disabled single mother failed to take her for further education. She then decided to start working as a hairdresser, a job she has done for over four years.

Annet has recently been enrolled in a UGAFODE group, where she has applied for a loan of 200,000 Ugandan shillings to buy hair relaxer oil and artificial hair for her salon business. She will be able to make some good profits since most women will be treating their hair to look good during Christmas. Her dream is to buy a plot of land and build a house where she can stay with her disabled mother.

Annet is the second from left in the first row.

In this group: Susan, Justine, Rebecca, Irene, Pauline, Moses, Andrew, Margret, Annet, Moreen, Japyeri, Annet
