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 to buy air conditioners necessary for his business.


Mhamad's story

Mhamad is a 31-year-old married man, living with his wife and one child in Qana. Mhamad works at selling and fixing air conditioners. He's almost the only one in the region doing this. As we know, the summer season is his business's high season, and he has to be prepared for it. That's why he requested a loan from Al Majmoua-Kiva partner, in order to buy air conditioners requested by clients. He doesn't have enough cash on hand to get them.

Mhamad opened his own shop in 2007, but he has 10 years of experience in this field which gives him a positive point and his customers trust him.

He hopes to expand his business further and to have employees to help in doing quarterly maintenance for customers.
