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 $125 helped to buy more bales of used clothes.

Resty's story

Resty lives in Kampala, Uganda. She is single with six children and none of them attend school. She does not look after any other family members.

She has been selling second-hand clothes door-to-door for three years. She works six days a week. She does not have any other source of income.

She has requested a loan of USHS 300,000 from MCDT- SACCO to buy more second-hand clothes to sell. Her business challenges include seasonality and the ever-increasing prices of used clothes in Uganda. Her dream is to get a place where she can sell from instead of moving from place to place and also to start importing used clothes. She joined MCDT because the organization welcomes people with a small or no business and without demanding for collateral. She rents a house without access to both electricity and piped water. Her major monthly expenses include rent and school fees.
