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 $1,375 helped a member to buy craft materials for her shop.

Cloris' Group's story

Cloris's Group is comprised of hardworking women. Cloris is 18 years old and lives in the town of Kabwohe in the Kabwohe region of Uganda. She is single and has no children. For the past one year, Cloris has been working hard to manage her craft shop, which sells mats, and baskets.

To help expand her business, Cloris has requested a loan of 600,000 UGX from BRAC Uganda. The loan will be used to buy craft materials, and will help Cloris to generate greater profits and provide for her family. Cloris hopes that in the future she will be able to return to school.

Cloris is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to microfinance loans, the program provides both a safe place for young Ugandan women to take part in group activities, and a forum for life-skills training.

In this group: Cloris, Mwajabu, Christine, Sauda, Ruth, Julian
