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).

Kamu Kamu Women's Group A's story

K. David is the chairperson of Kamu Kamu Women’s Group A in Kayunga. The group meets at his home where he has a wife and a number of children. David is a traditional healer, very smart at his job, using the spirit of his late father. People with all sorts of problems and sicknesses come to his place for the cure and people are not complaining. His drugs are well packaged so that they do no harm to his customers. David employs people to look for the herbs from the villages in Jinja, Kayunga, Iganga and as far as Kenya, as well as paying for the herbs. He is seeking a loan to be able to buy the herbs as well as pay for labor both for his business and on his farm.
