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).

Fatima's story

Fatima is the daughter of R. A.. She is 43 years old, married and has seven children. She lives with her own family. She is a very honest, hard working and talented woman. She works in Kabul and has been working in the same area for more than four years. During this time, she has not been able to expand her business of weaving carpets. After trying her best, she needs some money to expand and buy some more tools for her business. She hopes that after completing her stock, she can be more successful in her business and life. She is happy with this loan process in Afghanistan and hopes that this can be a successful process in this country in the future.
