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).

A loan of $2,000 helped purchase fruits and vegetables.

Muhammad's story

Muhammad is a single young man from Rafah City in the Gaza strip, Palestine. Muhammad is 28 years old and runs a fruit and vegetable store in the city. He started the business four years ago and has earned his living from it for the past four years. The store is located in Rafah market.

Muhammad decided to take a $2000 loan from FATEN to purchase a larger quantity and variety of vegetables and fruits. Since his store is well-known and has established a good number of clients, Muhammad would like to expand his business.

Muhammad stands in his store in the picture shown above.
