World Refugee Day: Meet Kareem!

Read Kareem's story below and meet him in person (virtually) live on Kiva's Instagram on Friday, June 18th at 4pm EST! We'll be talking with him and Lev Plaves, our director of investments, in celebration of World Refugee Day this week. Be sure to follow @kiva.org on Instagram and join us on Friday.

What can you do to honor World Refugee Day with Kiva?

1. Support refugees in your community and around the world by lending.
2. Mark your calendar for Sunday, when we're matching refugee loans dollar-for-dollar!
3. Read refugee stories on our blog, like Kareem’s below, and hear his story live on Instagram on Friday, June 18th at 4pm EST. 

Kareem’s entire family has experienced what it’s like to be a refugee. And that’s why he’s dedicated his life and his career to supporting refugees.
