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 $750 helped to buy more food and other products for her mini market.

Sweileh's story

Sweileh was born in 1975. She is a widowed woman who is a mother of seven.

Sweileh is trying her best to support herself and her children after her husband's death. She and her brother work in a mini market that they have owned for one year. She started this project by selling food with her brother from their home. Then they started working independently.

Now she is planning to raise the quantity of food and other products at her mini market in order to raise their sales and profit to be able to support her children. Unfortunately, however, she doesn't have enough money to do so. For this reason, she applied for this loan.
