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).

Wilfrida's story

Wilfrida is married and has four children, all of whom go to school. She lives in a rental house that has electricity, but not piped water.

Wilfrida has a business offering M-pesa services (mobile money transfer). She has run this business for one year.

At present, Wilfrida needs to offer her customers better services. For that reason, she is requesting a loan through Yehu. She will invest the funds in the addition of float (electronic credits to sell) for her M-pesa business.
