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 $800 helped to buy a piece of land.

Julius's story

Julius is 42 years old and married, with five children.

He has a very big coffee plantation where he harvests 10 bags of coffee every season. His customers are his neighbors.

He has applied for a loan of UGX 2,000,000 to help him buy a piece of land also with coffee on it. It will help him harvest more coffee for the trade. His challenge is the weather that affects the coffee during the dry season, thus getting poor yields to his customers.

His hopes are to produce 50 bags of coffee every season and also to provide a good education for his children.
