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 $1,400 helped to perform necessary maintenance on his car.


Ahmad's story

Ahmad is a 57-year-old Lebanese man who lives with his wife and three school-aged children. He has been working as a taxi driver since 1996. He transports customers to their destinations, wherever they may be.

Ahmad is asking for a loan from Kiva partner Ameen s.a.l. to perform necessary maintenance on his car, including the inside and the outside. He took advantage of a previous Kiva loan, and he was very satisfied with the results, especially because the loan amount was sufficient to fulfill his business needs. In the future, he is planning to purchase a new car and hire a part-time employee in order to increase his profits and expand his business.
