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 $2,000 helped to help in paying part of his wedding expenses.


Mostafa's story

Mostafa is a 37-year-old engaged man. He is preparing to get married soon. He is a taxi driver, but earns a low salary which is not enough to cover all of life's costs and expenses.

Mostafa is requesting a 2,000 USD loan from FATEN to help him cover part of his wedding expenses such as paying for necessary new home furniture and appliances. This will enable Mostafa to prepare well for his wedding and enjoy this occasion, and to live in suitable conditions with his wife.
