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).

Rhubemuguma Group's story

Ms. Claire, the advisor in the loan group Rhubemuguma, is the mother of seven children, of whom six are in school, and one is not yet school-aged. She is 35 years old and married to a farmer. A merchant for over ten years, she is requesting this new loan to purchase 1,000 kg of dried cassava. The big problems she encounters while operating her business are drops in sales and prolonged electrical outages during rainy periods.
