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).

Jamal's story

Jamal is a 40-year-old married man, with no children yet to enjoy playing with, as he claims. Jamal has been painting furniture for 20 years, and his experience helps a lot in attracting customers from different regions requesting his service. His customers claim that Jamal's quality of work is excellent and he works hard to exactly fit his customers' requests.

Jamal is requesting a loan from Al Majmoua, Kiva's partner, in order to buy new updated tools for his business and to complete covering his newly built house's roof. This is Jamal's 12th cycle with Al Majmoua. His previous loans had a great impact on his business, which also improved his social situation. Al Majmoua is proud to deal with such a good standing borrower. He is a hard worker, self confident, and known for the excellent quality of work and the quick service he provides to his customers. Jamal hopes to expand his business and open his own furniture gallery in the future.
