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 $1,000 helped to purchase plumbing tools for resale.


Subhi's story

Subhi is a 23-year-old single man. For the past five years, Subhi has been operating a store that sells plumbing tools. This has been a profitable project and is located in a good commercial area. The store is his only source of income.

Subhi is requesting a 1,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing plumbing tools that many customers request. This will increase sales and improve Subhi's income, which will offer him better living conditions.
