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 purchase stationery and a copier machine for his bookstore.

Rami's story

Rami a 28-year-old, is married and has no children yet.
For the past five years, Rami has had a bookstore, where he sells various types of stationery to school and university students and to groups, which makes his project a profitable one. It is his only source of income. It needs more support to cover some urgent costs.
Rami wants to improve and expand his business, so he is requesting a USD1,500 loan from FATEN to cover the cost of purchasing a collection of stationery and bring in a new copier machine, so students can use it to copy their documents and papers.
Taking out this loan will improve Rami's work and increase his sales, which will increase his income and create better living conditions for his family.
