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 $2,250 helped a member to buy wool and thread for her carpet weaving business.

Hamida's Group's story

Hamida has applied for a loan from KIVA's partner, Asasah, for her carpet weaving business. She learned this art from her mother and now she has become very skilful in her work and receives a good number of orders regularly. With this loan investment, she will buy wool, thread and other raw materials for making better quality carpets and increasing her income.

Hamida's husband and her only daughter also work in the family business of carpet weaving. Hamida has been operating her business for many years and is confident that an investment will help make it more profitable.
