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 $1,875 helped to build a stable for his animals.

Xhevair's story

Xhevair is an Egyptian man in his 60s and has been photographed with his wife Sanie for this profile. They are very poor and they live in the outskirts of a little town in southern Albania where they manage livestock as the main source of income for their family.

They started their dairy/livestock activity some six years back and have been selling milk to the local dairy farm ever since. Through this activity, they have been able to cover their basic living expenses; yet they couldn’t put any money aside to build a stable for their animals. This is the reason that they are applying for a loan for the first time.
