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).

Tareq's story

Tareq is a 28-year-old married man from Qabatiya, a village near Jenin. He works as a construction worker where he makes bricks using special frames made from wood. He has been in this business for the past two years. It is a good job, but Tareq would like to improve it. Tareq took a USD loan from FATEN. This loan will help him to buy wood frames for his construction business. By taking this loan, Tareq will be able to increase his productivity and also his income. Tareq appears in the photo.
