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).

Mohamad's story

Mohamad is a 24-year-old single man. He has been working to manufacture aluminum closets, windows and doors since 2004. In June 2006, Mohamad started his own business and worked hard on improving and developing it.

Today, Mohamad is requesting a youth loan from Kiva's partner Al Majmoua for the fourth time. Unlike the previous loans that were used to improve and expand his business, this one is to pay for his marriage legal documents and to finish pasting tiles in his house.

He has every Palestinian's dream of living in Lebanon to improve his life, expand his business and provide his family with a caring and loving life.

His honesty with his customers gave him the market's trust and support. He is working hard on including the glass in his business, which will be a good step towards a wider market.

He is looking forward to his new life and for this important step he is going to take.
