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 $1,500 helped to complete paying for his taxi.


Fayza's story

Fayza is a 27-year-old mother from Jabalia refugee camp. Her husband is a taxi driver. Fayza has two sons and two daughters. Fayza's husband bought his car three years ago. He paid 50% of its price to the owner and promised the rest after three years. Now that he has to pay the second 50%, he needs $1,500 added to the savings he has. Fayza took out a loan for that amount from FATEN so that her husband can pay for the car. Fayza is a conservative woman, therefore her husband is photographed instead.
