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 $700 helped a member to buy construction materials like wood in order to finish building the family house.


Al-Srihy Group's story

This group of four hard-working women is called Al-Srihy. The members live in Sana'a, Yemen. They have applied for a loan in the amount of 150,000 YER from AMB.

Ghalia is a 43-year-old married woman living in a poor area in Sana'a. She exhibits good moral values and is concerned for the well-being of her family, which is now living in a partially-finished house that needs essential construction work to be completed. She has therefore requested a loan in the amount of 50,000 YER from AMB, which she will use to buy construction materials like wood in order to finish building her house.

She states that she feels happy and grateful to Kiva lenders for the support that she is being provided, because this way she will be able to provide better living conditions for her family.

In this group: Ghalia, Nabila, Fatima, Elham
