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).

Abass's story

Abass is 22-year-old single man who previously worked as a barber. A year ago, he opened up a convenience store, mainly selling detergents and disposable plastics for household use. Since he started, he has built a good reputation in his neighborhood due to his courtesy and competitive prices.

Abass is applying for a youth loan from Kiva’s partner, Al Majmoua, to increase his shop's inventory. With this, he will be able to accommodate the increasing demands of his customers and further expand his business. Abass is optimistic about his business' future and is positive that with hard work, he can achieve his goals.
