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 $1,425 helped a member to purchase potato seeds and to pay for labor.

Twitezimbere B/ Gsz Group's story

Frediane is a Rwandan national and a member of the group TWITEZIMBERE B/ GSZ. He is married and 35 years old, and he has four children. The oldest is 17 years old, and the youngest is 5. Three of his children are going to school.

The proposed use for this loan is to purchase seeds for planting potatoes, as well as to pay for labor. The difficulties he expects for not paying back the loan are poor climatic conditions, crop epidemics, and bad harvests.

The strategy he has for increasing his business is to employ modern agriculture by using chemical fertilizers and manure.

For work, his ambition is to become a major distributor of farm products. For his family, his ambitions are to purchase a sewing machine for his clothing trade and a cow and to ensure his family's well-being.
