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 $2,600 helped to renovate and enlarge his fishery.


Mohammad's story

Mohammad is a 33-year-old married man who lives with his wife and one child. He’s the only one responsible for his family and he wants to offer them a better future.

Mohammad opened a fishery 10 years ago, and he’s satisfied with the results he has attained so far. His wife has also been working as a babysitter since 2009.

Today, Mohammad’s requesting a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to renovate and enlarge his fishery. He says that this will allow him serve a wider range of people and increase his revenues. In the future, Mohammad plans to open his own seafood restaurant.
