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 $3,000 helped to finish painting and installing tiles and windows in the house.

Somaya's story

Somaya is a 44-year-old woman. She is married and a mother to two sons and two daughters. Her husband and her two sons are workers and earn low salaries, which are not enough to cover the family's needs.
Somaya completed construction of her house and now she wants to completely finish it, so she is requesting a USD loan from Faten to cover the cost of painting her house and installing tiles and windows.

This loan will provide Somaya and her family suitable home conditions. They will move into their new house soon, before the winter season comes.
