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 $2,500 helped to buy a new tailoring machine.

Hussein's story

Hussein is a 35-year-old single man. He is a Syrian citizen who works and lives in Lebanon. He is the sole breadwinner of two members of his family. That's why he has to work hard and put so much effort into improving his socioeconomic situation. In 2008, he opened his current shop to improve his living.

Hussein is acquiring a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua to buy a new tailoring machine. He will also use a part of the loan to support his family through responding to some of their additional needs.

In the future, Hussein is hoping to buy his own shop instead of paying rent for the current working place.
