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).

Naataesim's story

Naataesim is 74 years old. He has three wives and twenty children. For the past ten years he has worked his farm and done well. He has added to his flock of animals, which his children help him manage.


Naataesim has paid off two prior loans with VisionFund Kenya. With the help of these loans his monthly income has increased. He is now applying for a third loan of 45,000 KES which he will use to buy feed for his livestock and cultivate maize on his farmland.


With his loans Naataesim has been able to take care of all of his family's basic needs. He hopes to continue to be prosperous and a helpful man to society.
