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).

John's story

John is 34 years old, married, and a father of one child. For the past five years, he has earned a living by offering point-to-point transport services in Malindi town, from which he earns a monthly profit of about KES 6,050. He was introduced to KADET LTD by a credit officer and is applying for his second loan, in the amount of KES 35,000. He is going to use a portion of the loan to service and repair his motorbike and use the remaining amount to purchase a pair of new wheels for his motorcycle. He will use the profits to pay school fees for his child, invest back into his business, and continue looking after his family. His goal for the future is to continue growing his business so that he can improve his financial stability.
