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 $1,425 helped to purchase mobile recharge cards and mobiles for his business.

Taha's story

Taha is 28 years old, married, and has three children. He lives in Aden, Yemen. Previously, he worked in a telecommunication shop, introducing phone services and selling mobile recharge cards to his customers. He has been involved in this kind of business since 2008. After collecting enough money, he opened a telecommunication shop.

Taha is requesting a loan for 300,000 YER from AMB Bank, which he will use to purchase mobile recharge cards and mobiles to sell to his customers and to develop services for his telecommunications shop. He needed the loan to purchase more goods for the shop to meet the demands of his clients. In the future, he hopes to be a successful merchant in order to buy a phone accessories store and earn an increased income, which will enable him to pay his obligations in school and some of his household expenditures.
