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).

Francis's story

Francis is 50 years old, married, and a father of five children. For the last two years, he has earned a living by selling farm produce such as mangoes in Malindi. He earns a monthly profit of about KES 7,050. Francis was introduced to KADET LTD by our credit officer, and is applying for his third loan of KES 20,000, to buy seeds, some fertilizer and other farm inputs needed for his business. He will use the profits made through this loan to pay school fees for his children as well as expand his farming activities. His goal for the future is to venture into mixed farming with a view of increasing his income so as to improve his family's living standards.
