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.

A loan of $2,200 helped to help her husband buy out his partner and own the entire dry cleaning business.

Dalal's story

Because Dalal is a conservative woman, she asked her husband to take her place in the picture.

Dalal was born in 1981. She is married and lives in a sector in Jordan called Marka with her husband who is running a dry cleaning business. Her husband got his experience from prior work at another dry cleaner. Then he decided to be a partner with his friend and opened their own dry cleaning store.

Now, his friend wants to sell his share of the business and Dalal’s husband wants to buy it in order to be the only owner, thus earning more profit. However, he doesn't have enough money to do so. For this reason, he has applied for a loan.
