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).

Hamisi's story

Hamisi, 24 years old, is a married man and has no children. He lives in his own house that has neither electricity nor piped water. His greatest monthly expense is food.

He has operated a retail shop for the past year, selling household consumables like wheat flour, maize flour, and sugar. With the loan he is requesting, he wants to purchase sugar, rice, maize flour and wheat flour to add to his inventory. He decided to join Yehu to access loans to boost his business.
