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).

Abdel Hasan's story

Abed Al Hasan is a 20-year-old Lebanese man. He’s single and lives with his family, including his parents and three siblings. His father is responsible for satisfying the family's needs and responding to their demands.

Abdel Hasan and two of his siblings also work, hoping to take some responsibilities off of their father. Abdel Hasan started his own business in 2009. He works independently in the construction field and has more than a few projects in the works.

Today, Abdel Hasan is asking for a youth loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to purchase the necessary construction supplies that will enable him to carry on his work properly. He is sure that in a short period of time he will be able to gain great experience and move out of the country, enabling hims to take bigger projects with higher earnings.
