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 pay her semester fees.


Malak's story

Malak is a 21-year-old single woman. She has five sisters and two brothers, who all live together with their parents. Her father supports the family from his retirement salary, with the help of her mother who works as a tailor.
Malak is a university student majoring in finance and banking. It is very hard for her parents supporting the whole family financially, so Malak is trying hard to graduate as soon as possible to start working so she can help to support the family. She has applied for this loan to pay her semester fees.
