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 $850 helped a member to expand her business by purchasing one more sewing machine.

Sajda's Group's story

Sajda is a 39-year-old hardworking mother of four children. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan along with her husband and children. She is a very skilled woman and she is very expert in stitching up dresses. She has been doing this tailoring work for 15 years. All the people in her area are very well satisfied and happy with her work. She provides her services at a very reasonable price and that's why her work is increasing day by day.

Sajda,as a member of a three-person lending group, has requested a loan from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan. She wants to expand her business by purchasing one more sewing machine. She would be able to stitch dresses more appropriately and efficiently in less time with a new sewing machine. This would increase her net income and savings. She would spend the profit amount on the education of her children.
