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 $500 helped to purchase seven goats for meat resale.


Mnyazi's story

Mnyazi is married with five school-going children. They own a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is food and school fees.

She has operated a goat-meat selling business for the past seven years. She sells the meat to town dwellers, passersby, and neighbors. She faces a major challenge of inflation in her business.

With the Kshs 40,000 she wants to purchase seven goats for meat resale. She decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost her business.
