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 $300 helped buy maize and millet.


Musa's story

Musa is a 47-year-old businessman. He is married and supports a family of four. He runs a small milling business (posho mill) in the outskirts of town. His wife earns additional income through her small-scale horticultural farming business.

Musa has been in this business for the past five years. He has requested a loan of KES 25,000. This is is second loan (the previous one was paid successfully) which he intends to purchase more maize and millet for milling.

With the anticipated profit, Musa intends to use to purchase another milling machine. His hope and dream is to expand his business to a full-fledged milling company which can produce different products.
