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).

Priscillah's story

Priscillah is a 33-year-old woman from Mbale in the Western part of Kenya. She is married to Apollo and they have been blessed with three children, aged six, nine and 12 years old respectively.

She owns a timber and firewood yard and has been in this business for three years. Her monthly income is 14,000 KES. She will use the loan to buy more stock of timber and firewood to sell.

Her dream is to own a number of timber yards within the region. This will help her pay for her children's school fees and also employ more people, thereby creating opportunity in the community where she lives.
