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 $1,200 helped to buy poultry feed and more chickens for rearing.

Ruth's story

Ruth is 47 years old and a poultry farmer from Nyahururu. She is married to John, who is a businessman, and together they are blessed with three children, aged 30, 27, and 20 years old.

She has been operating a business of poultry farming for the last ten years, and from it she makes a monthly income of KES 40,000.

To enable her to maximize her profits from this business, she has applied for her second loan of KES 100,000 from Kadet Ltd,, which shall be used to buy poultry feeds and more chickens for rearing.

Ruth intends to use profits realized from her expanded business to educate her grandchildren and to invest in other businesses.

She hopes that in the future, she is going to become a reknowned poultry farmer in her town and that her family will become more prosperous.
