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).

Ruqaiyah's story

Ruqaiyah is a 57-year-old married woman. She is the mother of six sons and three daughters. Her sons work but do not generate stable income.



Ruqaiyah owns land which is very good for growing crops. She has been working on this plot of land (pictured) for fifteen years. The income she generates from selling crops help to cover her family's monthly expenses.



Ruqaiyah is seeking a loan from FATEN to help her buy seeds of different types of fruits and vegetables. She feels that the loan proceeds will help her to increase her family's income and to improve the family's living standards.
