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).

Achraf's story

Achraf is a 27-year-old man who lives in Bourj El Barajneh, in the southern suburbs of Lebanon. Achraf owns a grocery store. He requested a loan of 3000 US dollars from Al Majmoua in order to purchase merchandise for his store like ice cream and a refrigerator for it, especially since summer is coming. This is his second loan cycle and he has always paid on time.



Achraf's previous loan helped him diversify his merchandise. Achraf is special in his work because he has a big variety of products. His clients are his friends and neighbors. When he first started his business, he didn’t face difficulties. In the future, he plans on expanding his business.
