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 expand her store’s inventory.


Anonymous's story

This Kiva borrower is a 29-year-old married woman and the mother of one young child. In 2008, she decided to open a clothes store after having her baby, to help her husband with the new expenses. She is thankful for her decision because, with her business income, she is able to support her husband well. And now, she is waiting for her second baby and she is asking for a loan of $1000 from Kiva's partner, Ameen s.a.l., to expand her store’s inventory. She says that the loan will help her diversify her merchandise selection and make more profit for her family. In the future, she is hoping to also sell shoes from her store. Currently, she mostly sells clothes.
