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 $600 helped to buy a refrigerator to use in the house.


Hassan's story

Hassan is a 29-year-old married man and has a child. They live together in Taiz, Yemen. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic man. He studied for a diploma as an Electrical Technician. He is an employer who puts all of his efforts into getting ahead. Unfortunately, his salary isn't enough to improve conditions for his family.

He would like to buy a refrigerator to keep foods and soft drinks cold, but he is not able to due to lack of money. So, he has applied for a youth loan of 125,000 YER from AMB to buy a refrigerator to use in the house. He hopes to open an electrical materials shop to improve his living standards.
