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).

Jihad's story

Jihad is a 37-year-old married man and a father of one child. He has been operating his own variety store for 15 years now; he sells accessories, perfumes, toys, and gifts. Jihad previously took a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua, and he was very satisfied with the credit, especially its amount.

Currently, Jihad is applying for a second loan. He will invest the money in buying new merchandise, mostly accessories and gifts. With this, Jihad will be able to serve the increasing demand of his customers. In the future, he is planning to further diversify his store and attract new customers.
