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 $3,000 helped to pay for repairing some parts of the house.


Yosra's story

Yosra is a Palestinian woman, married with one son and one daughter. Her husband and her son are employed with decent salaries. Yosra wants to make repairs to some parts of her house: the kitchen and the bathroom. These repairs include changing tiles, installing windows and doors, etc, but the amount of money Yosra has isn't enough to pay, so she needs to take a loan of $3,000 from FATEN. When Yosra gets the loan, which is repaid on a monthly basis, she will be able to repair her house, improve her daily life and offer better living conditions to her family. Yosra is a conservative woman, so her husband is photographed instead in the FATEN branch.
