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 $1,050 helped a member to buy bed sheets for her husband to sell.


Bashiran Anayat Masih Group's story

Bashiran baji is a very hardworking lady. She operates a business sewing clothes. She takes orders from her neighbors and her relatives. She doesn’t feel shy of being called a seamstress.

Her husband runs a business selling bed sheets which he buys from Lahore and sells in his native city, Vehari. They both have a wish to renovate their house and decorate it. Bashiran baji is applying for a loan to buy bed sheets to increase the profit of her husband’s business.

Bashiran baji is the group leader of four other women from her locality:

Shakeela begum baji wants a loan to buy items (taps [faucets], pipes) for her sanitary supplies business.

Shamim baji wants a loan to buy a sewing machine for sewing clothes.

Naseem khanum baji and Nazia baji each want a loan to buy auto-rickshaws (local three-wheeled motor vehicles).

In this group: Bashiran, Shakeela Begum , Shamim , Naseem Khanum , Nazia
