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 $775 helped to purchase for his building supply business more bricks, iron sheets, glass, timber, etc.

Peter's story

Peter used his previous loan of 30,000 KES to boost his building supply business and this increased his monthly income from 64,000 KES to 80,000 KES. He says that he is happy with the progress of his business, although he has not reached his target.

Peter is currently borrowing a loan of 65,000 KES which he intends to use to purchase for the business more stocks of building materials like bricks, iron sheets, glass, timber, etc. He plans to venture into another business with the anticipated profit from this business.
