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 $5,525 helped a member to buy clothes to resell.


Fursa Group's story

PILLY, who is in her mid 40s, is married with two children, both of whom are still going to school. She has been selling clothes for five years now. She works from 8 AM-8 PM daily and is able to make a very good monthly profit.

This will be PILLY's 2nd loan from Tujijenge Tanzania. She used the previous loan to buy different types of clothes. She has paid back her loan successfully. She is doing great and appreciates the loan. She used the profit to pay school fees, cover household expenses and she is saving money in order to buy a tricycle (bajaji). She will use this money to buy clothes to resell. She dreams of opening another clothing shop in a different area.

Pilly will share this loan with her loan group "FURSA," which has four members who will hold each other accountable for paying back the loan.

In this group: Pilly, Albano, Julius, Saidi
