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 $250 helped to buy a stock of rice, flour and sugar.

Sughran's story

Sughran is a 57-year-old, married woman. She has been successfully running a small general store in her community for the last two years. She offers various goods for daily use. She has good communication skills and counts on a good client list. Her husband earns insufficient income to support his family, alone. Sughran is a mother of three children and is motivated to provide for her family.

Because she wants to grow her business, Sughran requested a loan of PKR 25,000. She will use the loan to buy a stock of rice, flour and sugar from the market, at lower rates. Then she would be able to meet the increasing demand, consistently. She is in her fourth loan cycle and has a good repayment history. She wishes to use part of the revenues to deal with personal expenses, and the rest to increase her business capital.
