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 $1,475 helped a member to buy various items for her shop.


Karagwe Group's story

Harriet is a member of the Karagwe group. She resides in the Ntungamo district. Harriet has a retail shop, which is located within the cell where she lives. Her major challenge is a lack of capital for her business. She has applied for 500,000 UGX to buy various items for her shop. She also hopes to use some of the money to pay the school fees for her children. Harriet is glad that she has an institution like UGAFODE to borrow from since it helps her restock the shop. In the photograph, the group is with their loan officer.

In this group: Harriet, Judith, Sitera , Zipora, Dorosi, Florence, Dorcus, Tabisa, Jovati, Grace, Rosette
