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 $1,000 helped to buy a solar system for heating water and a tank for her home.


Saja's story

Saja is an 18-year-old married woman from Jenin city. She lives with her husband and one small son in a very simple house. Her husband is an employee in the public sector where he gets a low income. This is the only source of income for the family. Saja would like to improve the family living conditions and buy everything they need.

Saja took a USD Murabaha loan from FATEN. This loan will help her to buy a solar system for heating water and a tank for her home. By taking this loan, Saja will be able to improve their living conditions and provide hot water without using electricity.
