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).

He specializes in repairing vehicle bodies. His business income is very important because he helps his father paying their heavy living expenses. This talented young man was able to gain a good number of clients asking for his repair services. Today, he is requesting to borrow $1,200 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase additional developed tools needed for his business. In the future, he is planning to open a bigger store to buy and sell car spare parts.
