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 $1,575 helped to expand the inner space of his shop and increase the amount of fruit that he sells.


Abbas's story

Abbas, 40 years old, is a father of three daughters. Abbas own a small shop in the market. He has two sections in it: one for selling fruits and vegetable, the other for making sandwiches as take away snacks. It has been more than 10 years since he started the shop, and from this business, he is supporting his family.

Now Abbas has applied for a loan because he wants to expand the shop in order to separate the two sections from each other, and increase the amount of fruits and vegetable that he sells, since this is what the shop is basically made for.
