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).

Mary's story

Mary is married with three children and two of her children go to school. She doesn’t take care of any other additional family members. She has a clinic and has been in this business for twenty years. She has applied for a loan of 2,200,000 Uganda Shillings from Micro Credit for Development and Transformation SACCO (MCDT SACCO) to buy more drugs like boxes of syrups and injections. She works in a shop that she rents and sells on retail basis seven days of the week. Her major business challenges include taxes, defaulters and seasonality. She aspires to own a fully stocked pharmacy and also to build rental rooms. She resides in her own house and the family has access to electricity and piped water. Her monthly expenses include school fees and rent for her business premise.
