Help us reach $600,000 by December 31!

Dear Kiva Lender,

Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers every week, but since Kiva doesn't take a fee on your loans we rely on donations from lenders like you to keep doing this important work. If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $20 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31! Your support helps us make a global impact.

In appreciation, Chelsa Bocci, Sr. Director, Community

Kiva Loan Dedication


Tulkarem City

Mursi is a 25-year-old married man from Tulkarem. He lives in a simple house with his wife and one son. Mursi is a worker with a low wage, his salary barely covers the family's needs. Mursi wants to improve the family's housing conditions. Now he works to fix the outside stairs for the family's house. Mursi took a $3,000 Youth loan from FATEN. This loan will help Mursi to improve the standards of living for his family, so they can enjoy living in their house. Mursi photographed in front of his house.

To: Matt C.

I chose this loan because... of all the hard work he and Lindsay do to provide a comfortable home for their family - just as this young man is doing.
