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).

Walid's story

Walid is a 39-year-old man who lives in Tripoli, northern Lebanon with his wife and their three children. Walid has been working as a car painter since 1994. He also sells spare parts for cars. He requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to purchase spare parts for cars. This is his third cycle and he has always paid on time.
His previous loan helped him improve his work. Walid is special in his work because he knows how to treat his clients. His clients are his friends and neighbors. When he first started his business, he didn’t face difficulties. Walid decided on doing his business because he likes his work. In the future, he plans on expanding by selling more spare parts.
