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 $375 helped to buy cocoa to offer for sale.


Wilfred's story

Wilfred, age 41, is a farmer in Bundibugyo, Uganda. He grows cocoa and also buys cocoa from other farmers to sell. He has operated his business for over five years.

Like most farmers, he is challenged by inadequate capital to buy necessary farm inputs, coupled with price fluctuation. Nevertheless, his dream is to become the leading cocoa supplier in the district.

Wilfred intends to use the loan to buy cocoa to offer for sale.
