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 $3,000 helped to repair his house, installing doors for the kitchen closet and extending the electricity.

Abass's story

Abass is 58 years old, and he lives in the Askar camp at Nablus.

Askar is a Palestinian refugee camp. It is located on the outskirts of the West Bank city of Nablus and was established in 1950 on 209 dunums of land. In 1960 the camp was expanded onto a further 90 dumums. Abass lives with his wife and six sons, one of them still in primary school.

Abass works in the construction sector, which helped him to build his house. He has asked Ryada for this loan to repair his house, because he has a shortage of money. He needs to install doors for the closet in the kitchen and extend the electricity.

Abass is very grateful to everyone who helps him.
