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).

Nabil's story

Nabil is a 32-year-old Lebanese married man living with his wife and two children, who are in school. He is the main income source for his family. In 2004, he decided to get involved in the car-trading industry. Due to his talented negotiation skills and friendly personality, he was able to succeed in this occupation. But his financials are hardly helping him covering the high costs of living; that’s why he got his wife’s support in order to bring added income into their life. Today, he is requesting to borrow a loan from Kiva partner, Vitas s.a.l., to purchase some required equipment for his business. His purpose is to improve his cars and secure their transportation features. Nabil is very optimistic and willing to open his own showroom in the near future.
