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).

Johnson's story

Johnson is 29 years old and blessed with two children. He is a livestock trader in the Lower Melili area of Narok county, Kenya, and has been running the business for the past six years making a monthly income of KES 20000.

He has borrowed a first loan of KES 30000 from KADET with which he intends to purchase more livestock for resale. He also has plans to use part of the funds to buy planting seeds for the upcoming planting season. The anticipated profit will be reinvested to boost his business. His future dream is to improve his living standards.
