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 $1,175 helped to complete work on his family home.

Apollo's story

Apollo is a permanent resident of Nyamityobora, in the Mbarara municipality. He is married with 5 children and 2 dependents. He grew up without parents which made his life difficult, as they both died when he was still young.

Being pushed by the need to survive, he started poultry farming on a small scale on the land he inherited from his parents. Because he was hard working, he used his little savings to build another house that enabled him to have more birds and expand the business. This business has grown and given him an opportunity to support his family and dependents.

Apollo is requesting for a loan of 3000,000 UGX to complete work on his family home.
