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 $1,500 helped to undergo eye surgery and finish paying for his car.


Radwan's story

Radwan is a 35-year-old married man from Lebanon and the father of three children. He has worked in car maintenance for fourteen years. He has wide experience as a mechanic, which provides him with his customers' trust.

His business is the lone source of income for his family. For this reason, he works hard to keep on improving and developing it. Radwan is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to undergo eye surgery and finish paying for his car.

This is Radwan's second cycle as an Al Majmoua borrower. His previous loan was invested in his business in a well-managed way. Radwan hopes to keep on improving and developing his business as much as he can.
