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).

Naema Group's story

Naema is a group of four women from Aden, Yemen. They applied for a 110,000 YER loan.

Saher is 27 years old, married, and has a 5-year-old child. She has been selling cosmetics in her neighborhood for more than a year since she was granted a loan to buy cosmetics. This business helped her to start building a room, using the profits she made.

Now, Saher needs to pay for roofing, so she applied for a loan of 30,000 YER. Saher hopes to finish building her house and start selling high-quality cosmetics after she accumulates a large sum of money.

In this group: Saher, Sabah, Naema, Kawther
