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 pay his university fees.


Ahmed's story

Ahmad is a 22-year-old Lebanese single man. He lives with his parents and four siblings. He has one working sibling while three others are still attending school. Ahmad achieved his third year in hotel management at a local university and is seeking to pursue his master's degree. For this reason, he’s requesting to borrow $2000 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay his university fees in order to be able to continue his education properly. In the future, he plans to take more Kiva loans with the ambition to pursue higher university degrees.
