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).

Rebin's story

Rebin is a 24 years old married man, living in Iraq with his wife.

For the past 3 years he has been supporting his family by working in his own metal shop, manufacturing metal window and door frames as well as metal doors and gates.

In the past, Rebin took a loan from Relief International - Iraq to buy a generator for his shop. After successful repayment of the previous loan, he now took a loan of 2,100 USD to keep improving his store with additional machinery and renewal of his work area.
