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).

Ali's story

Ali is a 26-year-old married man, living with his wife in Chakra, Southern Lebanon. Ali has been working in furniture and house decorations since 1994, with seventeen years of experience. Ali requested a loan from Al Majmoua in order to buy iron pillars, which are necessary to his work.
