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 $375 helped to purchase bundles of fish for sale.

Omar's story

Omar is a married man and has six school-going children. He owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expenses are food and school fees.

He has operated a fish-selling business at the market for the past five years, selling to his town dwellers and neighbors. He faces a major challenge of the high cost of purchasing fish.

He is requesting a loan to purchase bundles of fish for sale. He decided to join Yehu to access loans at lower cost to improve his business.
