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 $975 helped to complete his rental house.


Ronald's story

Ronald resides at Nyabubare cell. He is a long-time client of Ugafode. He runs a restaurant in town as his business.

Ronald has applied for a loan of UGX 2,500,000 to enable him to buy building materials to complete his rental house, which will give him more income in future than staining the restaurant alone.

He hopes when the money comes as additional income, he will no longer strain his business and therefore increase his income. Ronald is standing on the right, the person to his left is the UGAFODE staff. He hopes to pay back the loan well such that he maintains the partnership.
