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).

Kiva Loan Dedication



Akbar is married and has three children to whom he has always wanted to provide a good quality of life. It’s for this reason that he one year ago began his own business with driving. Thanks to the good service, he has managed to gain many customers. Since he’s had his business, his family’s quality of life has been improving, now that his children are able to get a good education and the financial challenges are being solved little by little. He is asking for a loan to repair his car. In this way his business will have the opportunity to provide better service and to increase his income which allows him to offer his children and wife a better quality of life and better financial opportunities for getting ahead.

I chose this loan because... This guy looks like a badass. Just like you.
