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 $1,925 helped to buy industrial products for his store.

Hijran's story

Hijran is a merchant. He has a grocery store where he sells basic foods necessities. He also has an agriculture business from which he sells milk products.

He is married and has two school-age children under his care. His wife is a housewife and helps him with the agriculture activity.

Today, the money he is requesting is for the purchase of industrial products for his store. And after some time, he plans to hire an assistant.

Hijran says that he feels very good about working with VFAC and Kiva because he has seen the growth in himself as a person and in his family. He has a better quality of life thanks to Kiva, which has financed all his requested loans. He invested those loans in his house and his business.
