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).

Sirwan's Group's story

Sirwan is a member of this group from Iraq. Sirwan is 40 years old, married and has three children. Sirwan is a government employee.
Sirwan has a smart son in the fourth grade; he always gets high grades. Because of Sirwan's low salary, he faces the problem of making ends meet at the beginning of the school year for the additional money that is needed to cover the children's fees, school uniform and books. He is requesting a loan to pay for his son's tuition fees and other school expenses. With this loan he can accommodate all these expenses and continue to give his son the best education possible.

Sirwan is determined to give his children the education needed to have better work opportunities and a better future.
The story of Sirwan and his son is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona for Economic Development clients who are able to get a better education.

In this group: Sirwan, Hersh
