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).

Flora's story

Flora is 34 years old, and from Nakuru. She is not married but she has one child aged 6 years old. She is in the tailoring business, and has been in operation for the past seven years. She has applied for her third loan of 20,000 KES from KADET LTD which will enable her to buy stock of clothing materials and sewing thread for her business, in bulk.

Flora's monthly income right now is 10,000 KES and she hopes to use the anticipated profit from her expanded business in buying a plot. Her hopes and dreams for the future are that she will own one of the most magnificent clothing companies and for her child to be well catered for.
