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 $1,000 helped to buy retail stock, such as sugar, flour, cooking oil, soap, etc.


Edith's story

Edith is grateful for the previous loans she has received. Her retail shop is on the rise, and she would like to increase the stock due to the demand she has witnessed of late. She is therefore applying for a loan of 83,500 Kenya shillings to buy retail stock, such as sugar, flour, cooking oil, soap, etc. She believes there is a good season ahead and will be able to meet the required repayments.
