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 $600 helped to buy cow heads for making soup.


Joseph's story

Joseph is 33 years old, married to Judy and together they are blessed with a 12-year-old child.

He has a hotel in Naivasha where he has specialized in selling delicious soup. He has been in this business for 10 years and has applied for his second loan from VisionFund Kenya to enable him buy cow heads for making soup. With anticipated profit, he plans to expand his business and pay school fees.

In the near future, he hopes to own the biggest soup hotel in Naivasha.
