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 add stocks of meat to sell in his butcher shop.


John's story

John is 35 years old, married to Beatrice, and a father of five children aged 14, 11, 7, 4 and 1. He has been running a butcher shop for the last four years, getting a monthly income of 20,000 KES. He learned about KADET LTD from one of his regular customers who is a registered member.

He has applied for a second loan of 30,000 KES after successfully paying off his previous loan.

He will use the loan to add stocks of meat to sell in his butcher shop.

The anticipated profits will be reinvested in his business for expansion. His future dream is to rear his own livestock so as to minimize the cost of production.
