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).

Shireen's story

Shireen is a 28-year-old married woman who supports three family members in Nao'or, Jordan. She is requesting a loan of 400 JD to buy materials for her beauty salon, such as a hair dryer, a skin cleaning machine and cosmetic products. She hopes in the future to expand her project to increase her family income.
Since Shireen is under 30 years old, her loan is considered a youth loan.
