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 $2,025 helped to expand his poultry house.

Thomas's story

Thomas is a first time borrower applying for a loan of 5,000,000 UGX. He is single and stays in Banda next to Kyambogo University. He has a poultry farm project which he has been engaged in for two years. He says he has a ready market for his eggs and a broiler in the Banda area and finds no problem with supply. Thomas’s client demand has increased but he is unable to meet them; therefore, he is applying for a loan to expand his poultry house so that he is able to meet all of the demands of his customers. He has been able to contribute to his community through providing jobs at the poultry house to a few young, jobless Ugandans. He is hard working and focused.
