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 buy new farming products and supplies.

Anonymous's story

This Kiva borrower is a 35-year-old Lebanese married woman. She lives with her husband and two young children, who are still attending school. She has been producing plastic agricultural tents for 8 years. In 2008, she bought her own land and started cultivating different types of vegetables according to the season. She uses her plastic tents to grow her produce faster. She distributes the harvest to specific agricultural markets that she deals with. She is thankful for her business; it allows her to make extra money for the family.

Today, she is requesting a loan of $1000 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to buy new farming products and supplies such as fertilizers and seeds, because she's planning to expand her business. She is certain that the loan will help her increase her productivity and therefore her sales.
