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 $1,100 helped to pay his own educational fees until graduation.


Hussein's story

Hussein is a 25-year-old Lebanese single man living with his parents. He has been working as a human resource manager in one of the local malls since 2009. At the same time, he hopes to carry on his education in order to reach higher positions.

For that reason, he has big and serious responsibilities to care for. Today, he wants to borrow $1,100 from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to pay his own educational fees until graduation. He will be more than happy to graduate and achieve his master’s degree.

In the future, he plans to take new Kiva loans and maybe open his own business.
