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).

Nahi's story

Nahi is a 23-year-old man who lives in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon. Nahi has owned a barber shop for almost two years now. He sells beauty products.

He is special in his work because he knows how to treat his customers and his clients feel comfortable going to him because he offers a lot of services. Most importantly, he is good in his work and is aware of the new hair style fashions. When he first started his business, he didn’t face difficulties beause he already had faithful customers from his previous job. He decided to start his business because he gained experience and wanted to have an independent workplace. His clients are his friends, neighbors and tourists.

He has requested a loan from Al Majmoua to purchase beauty products and make some décor changes. This is his second loan and he has always paid on time.
