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 buy a specialized photography camera.

Heyam's story

Heyam, who appears in the photo, is a 39-year-old married woman and a mother to two sons and two daughters. Her husband is employed and gets a low salary which is not enough to cover all of the family's needs.

For the past ten years, Heyam has had a photography shop. She has a good reputation among her customers and her shop is located in a well known area where there is good commercial traffic. This makes her project a profitable one that provides a much-needed second income to the family. However, from time to time it needs more support to cover some costs.

Heyam is requesting a 1,500 USD loan from FATEN to cover the costs of purchasing a new specialized photography camera.

This will allow Heyam to expand the scope of her work, improve her business, and increase the family's income.
