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 $1,150 helped to buy a dairy cow.

James's story

James is 38 years old and does dairy farming in Nairobi town. He is married to Sarah who also provides income in support of the family. He has two children 12 and 3 years old, respectively. He has been in the business for 12 years and right now his monthly income from his dairy farming business is Kenya shillings 20,000.

He will use the loan to purchase a dairy cow, which will enable him to get more milk supply. He will use the anticipated profits from his expanded business to pay his loan and other bills such as electricity. This is his sixth loan with KADET LTD.

His previous loans were repaid successfully and in the future, James hopes to be a large-scale dairy farmer.
