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).

Ayman Group's story

The Ayman group consists of three poor women from Taiz, Yemen. They asked for a loan of 120,000 YER from AMB to purchase clothing and cosmetics for resale.
Hamida is a 42-year-old uneducated married woman with six children. She is a door-to-door salesperson. She has been selling women's and kids' clothing, perfumes, and incense for about a year. Her business makes a good profit, so she intends to buy more products to cover the increasing demands from her clients and to target new clients; therefore, she applied for a loan of 40,000 YER. Hamida looks forward to sending her children to schools and universities to be able to make their own futures.

In this group: Mona, Hamida, Tamnia
