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).

Bahati's story

Bahati is a recurrent client of Yehu Microfinance. She is married and her husband is employed; he works as an office messenger at Kenya Port Authority.

Bahati has had a grocery store since 2011. She has repaid several loans to date. She is asking for this one to buy maize flour, wheat flour, sugar, tea, and other goods to offer a wider variety to her customers. With a greater variety of products to offer her customers, she will earn a larger profit margin that will help to improve her entire family’s standard of living.
