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 $1,350 helped to buy extra clothes to sell during the upcoming holiday season.


Alia's story

Alia is a 32-year-old married woman. Her husband is serving in the military while she is taking care of their three children.


Alia has a small business at home selling clothing to neighbors and friends. Her business is expanding slowly by word of mouth.


Now Alia has applied for a 950 JOD loan from National Microfinance Bank to buy extra clothes and get a new collection to take advantage of the upcoming holiday season. In the future she also wants to offer housewares, too.
