Mathare Youth Talented Organization


MYTO Microfinance

Since 2008 MYTO has been implementing a microfinance program in order to help some members in the community to start or improve their small business. All members are women and Mathare residents. The women use the loans to help pay for their children’s school fees, school uniforms, school books, food, and for the care of local orphans that live with them as well.

MYTO works in partnership with Kiva, a non-profit platform that connects borrowers and lenders all over the world. Borrowers start with a 10,000KSh loan that they have to repay. Once they have repaid this first loan they can apply for a larger one.
