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).

Al-Fol Group's story

This group is called Al-Fol and consists of four ladies who live in Sana`a, Yemen. Samira is 33 years old, a married woman who has six children. She is a tailor who has been operating this business for two years. She took many courses in her field till she was able to be professional in her business. She works hard to finish her clients' requirements. She said this business is not extremely profitable, so she intends to enlarge her business.
