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 improve and repair a taxi.


Haitham's story

Haitham is 39 years old, married and lives with his wife and four children, all of whom attend school. For the last 18 years, he has worked hard as a taxi driver to support his family and pay his children's school fees. He is applying for a loan for $2,000 from Kiva partner Ameen to upgrade his car’s engine, perform needed maintenance and have the vehicle painted. This will allow him to carry on with his work in a proper way. In the future, he plans to buy a minivan in order to transport more people.
