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).

Abas's Group's story

Abas is a member of this group from Iraq. Abas is 25 years old, married and has two children. He started his carpentry business eight years ago making bedroom and other furniture. He is requesting this youth loan to buy an electric saw to help him work faster and deliver his products on time, and thus increase his profits and provide a better life for his family. He plans to expand his business, hire additional workers, and continue assisting his family with the additional income.

The story of Abas and his business is just one of the many examples of Izdiharona for Economic Development clients.

In this group: Abas, Husseien, Ali
