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 $1,200 helped to purchase a tailoring machine for her business.

Hadiyeh's story

Hadiyeh is a 49-year-old Lebanese married woman living with her husband. They’re both cooperating together in order to have a respectable life.

Hadiyeh has been working as a tailor for the past nine years from her home. She’s well known as a reputable person and has gained a fair number of customers from all over the neighboring villages. Her husband has been also working as a constructor for 14 years.

Today, she’s looking to borrow a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase a tailoring machine for her business. This Kiva loan will boost her productivity and thus her revenues.

In the future, she plans to open her own evening dresses shop and expand her business outside the country.
