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).

Om Hasen Group's story

This group is called Om Hasen. It consists of four women from Sana'a, Yemen. They applied for a loan of 200,000 YER from AMB.

Hameda is 32 years old and a mother of four children. Her oldest child is 13 years old and the youngest one is 3 years old. Hameda works as a tailor. Her business was set up in her place of residence 8 years ago. She sews all kinds of clothes for the people in her area. She is very detail-oriented and does very good work. This allows her to have the loyalty of many customers, friends, and neighbors.

She earns good profits from this business, but most of what she earns goes to the expenses of the family. Hameda wants to improve her business but she doesn't have enough money for that, so she is asking for a loan of 50,000 YER from AMB to purchase more sewing materials in order to expand her business. She looks forward to providing her children with a secure future.

In this group: Mona, Amrya, Hameda, Nojod
