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).

Hasna's story

Hasna is a 50-year-old Lebanese widowed woman living by herself. In 1997, she started to work as a housekeeper cleaning out residences upon customer’s demands. Following her spouse passing away, she was forced to also work at a local company as a housekeeper with the aim of being able to meet life's necessities. And today, Hasna is eager to buy a stepladder, cleaning products and detergents to improve her work and end up with satisfying and agreeable results. To do so, she is applying for a loan from Kiva partner Vitas s.a.l. and she is sure that it will definitely be useful for her and her business.
