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).

Peter's story

Peter is 32 years old, married to Mercy, and they have been blessed with three children, 7, 2 and 10 months old. Peter sells spices and has been in this business for four years and right now his monthly income from the business is Ksh 35,000. He is borrowing a loan of Ksh 100,000 which he intends to add more stock of assorted spices to strengthen and add variety to his business. Peter plans to open other branches with the anticipated profit from the business. This is his third loan and he successfully repaid his previous loan.
