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 $475 helped to purchase green tea leaves for resale.

Joel's story

Joel is 63 years old and married to Dinah, who also helps provide for the upkeep of the family through subsistence farming. He supports a family of 10 people. He and his wife are blessed with nine children between 11 and 33 years old. For the past six years, Joel has run a business of buying and selling green tea leaves. He earns a monthly income of KES 25,000.

Joel is now requesting a loan of KES 40,000 from KADET LTD. He wishes to use this amount to purchase green tea leaves for resale. The profits he earns will be used to repay the loan and purchase more green tea leaves.

His dream is to own tea plantations someday.
