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 $1,000 helped to buy accessories and cosmetics to sell.


Rola's story

Rola is a 19-year-old single woman from Marka in Amman, Jordan. She has requested a 700 JOD loan to buy accessories and cosmetics to sell. In the first stage of her business, she only sold accessories; now, she is expanding to sell cosmetics and perfumes. She is looking forward to having her own shop and to improving her family's situation. Since Rola is aged under 30, her loan is considered a youth loan.
