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 $1,725 helped buy cosmetic items.

Godwin's story

Godwin is 50 years old and lives in the town of Wakiso, in the Kampala region of Uganda. He is married and has five children, who are all currently in school. For the past 25 years, Godwin has been working hard to manage his cosmetics shop.

To help expand his business, Godwin has requested a loan of 4,500,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy cosmetic items, and will help Godwin to generate greater profits and stock the shop. Godwin hopes that in the future he will be able to own a big cosmetics shop.

Godwin is a member of BRAC's Small Enterprise Program (SEP). The program primarily serves small entrepreneurs like Godwin who do not have enough collateral for commercial loans but have businesses that have grown too large for microloans.
