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 $3,000 helped to complete construction of her house.


Eman's story

Eman is a conservative woman who prefers not to have her photo published online, so her husband appears in her Kiva profile photo while he is playing with two of his children in front of their house.

Eman is a 42 year old woman. She is the mother of two sons and four daughters. Her husband is a guard at a local factory and he earns a low salary. It is not enough to cover the family's costs and to pay for the completion of the home's construction which began ten years ago.

Eman is requesting a 3,000 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the expenses of the construction as well as to improve its condition with things such as: painting, installing tiles, and installing a new ceiling for the house. Taking this loan will create for Eman and her family a better and more comfortable home condition.
