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).

Muhabbat's story

Muhabbat M. is a 49-year-old woman, who is married and has four children. For ten years, Muhabbat has sold blankets, bedding, towels and tablecloths at the Spitamen district clothing market. Since 2003, she has been one of MicroInvest's vital customers. Once a month, Muhabbat goes to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, on a buying trip. Her husband works in construction, and he and their eldest son recently returned from Russia. Muhabbat and her family dream of opening their own shop in the center of the district.
