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).

Halima's story

Halima lives in the Qubadiyon region. She is a sensible and hard-working woman, 49 years of age. Halima has two children, who are 20 and 23 years old, and a 15-year old daughter. Her husband is a farmer and raises livestock. Halima learned from her husband how to raise livestock. For five years she has been raising livestock in her backyard. At present she has only a small number of sheep, and she would like to increase their headcount. This is why she is applying for this loan, which she truly needs.
