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 $2,500 helped buy beauty supplies for her salon.

Ola's story

Ola is a Palestinian married young woman. She is a mother to three sons and two daughters. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary, which is not enough to cover the family's needs.

For the past three years, Ola has been operating a beauty salon located in a good movement area downtown. Her business has a good reputation among her customers and has been a profitable project, but it also needs more financial support to cover the costs.

Ola is requesting a 2,500 USD loan from FATEN to help her cover the cost of purchasing new beauty salon supplies such as hair and body creams, new collection of hair color tubes, hair dryers, and new collection of makeup colors. This will increase the size of Ola's work and improve her family's income.
