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 $1,000 helped to maintain her car.

Rana's story

Rana is a 26-year-old married woman who is the mother of one child. She works in a beauty salon to help her husband make a living. Rana is a hard worker who is recommended by most of her customers. She dreams of opening her own beauty salon instead of working for others, but her financial situation doesn't let her make her dream come true. Rana also uses her car to visit her own customers in their homes to provide requested salon services. She needs transportation to continue to provide her mobile beauty services.

Rana is requesting a youth loan through the Kiva partner Al Majmoua to maintain her car until she's able to buy a new one. This will be Rana's second loan cycle from Al Majmoua. She used her previous loan to purchase materials needed to support her mobile beauty business.
