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 increase variety of products in his shop with winter fruits and vegetables especially before the Christmas and New Year's season.

Taha's story

Taha is a 49-year-old married man and father of one child. He has been working for 30 years selling fruits and vegetables; it is his only source of income. Taha has been working since he left elementary school, similar to many Palestinian refugees living in Lebanon who do not have enough work experience of education and therefore can not choose the career they may desire. Taha is applying for his first loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to increase his shop's variety of products with winter fruits and vegetables, especially before the Christmas and New Year's season. He is sure that this loan will increase his income and improve his living conditions and he hopes that he will remain capable of providing for his family.
