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).

Maritha's story

Maritha is a 54 year old from Nyandarua South, Kenya, and is married with three children who are aged between 20 and 14 years. She is a farmer and has applied for her fourth loan from KADET Ltd to enable her buy a dairy cow, which she will use to boost her dairy business.
