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).

Haydar's story

Haydar is an Iraqi youth client, who is 30 years old and married. Haydar lives with his family of eight, three of whom assist each other in providing the family income.

Haydar owns a small garage where he specializes in tinting cars. He has been in this field for 10 years and gained his experience by working as an employee at a similar garage. In 2009, Haydar established his own business and has now hired an employee. He has become well-known in his neighborhood thanks to his affordable prices.

Haydar is requesting a youth loan of 3,000 USD, which he will use to buy specialized equipment for his work. Haydar believes that this loan will improve his business and increase his profits and will give him the ability to provide his family with a better financial situation.
