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 a new repair kit.


Omar's story

Omar, photographed here working in his workshop, is a 22-year-old single young man. For the past five years, Omar has been running a workshop for repairing and fixing vehicles, which has been a profitable project and his only source of income.

Omar is requesting a 1,000 USD youth loan from FATEN to help him cover the price of purchasing a new repair kit, which is necessary to improve the quality of his work. This loan will provide Omar the opportunity to work in better conditions and increase his number of customers, which will increase his income.
