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).

Al-Ettihad 50065 Group's story

Zahiya, age 75, is the featured borrower of the Al-ettihad 50065 Group. She earns an income by offering tailoring services. She has been engaged in this work for the past 30 years. She is a hard worker whose goal is to help support her husband and family through her business. She is known in the community for her special talent in the tailoring domain. Zahiya and her husband have one child.

Zahiya is requesting a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua in order to perform necessary maintenance on her house before the winter season sets in. Her goal is to keep it a healthy place for her family to live in and for her customers to visit. She hopes to stay in good health so that she can remain capable of responding both to her family's and to her customers' needs.

Zahiya and the other group members joined together to acquire a loan from Kiva partner Al Majmoua because they have always been neighbors and friends. Zahiya is second from the left in the picture. The other members are named Yousra, Najwa, and Jinan. Yousra is shown holding her precious baby, Najwa is the first on the left (wearing pink), and Jinan is at the far right.
