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 $1,000 helped to perform the needed maintenance on the apartment.


Anonymous's story

This Kiva borrower is a 57-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife. He has worked in a poultry shop since 2007. In parallel, he has owned an apartment since 2009. He cooperates with his wife who works in a lingerie shop to maintain the family financial level at a good stage. Recently, he got the idea of renting out the apartment so he can earn extra income.

So today, he is requesting to borrow $1000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l to perform the needed maintenance on the apartment so it can be ready whenever a client shows up asking to rent it. In the future, he is hoping to buy more apartments and get into the residence dealer occupation.
