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 $1,000 helped a member purchase items for making embroidered dresses.

Nighat's Group's story

Nighat is a very talented and hardworking lady. She embroiders dresses and sells them in boutiques. Her work attracts more customers so the owners of boutiques come to her with orders. She earns approximately $60 a month, which is a big source of income for the family.

She has six children: three sons and three daughters. All of her kids are enrolled in school.

Her husband operates a wood-selling business in the community. He also goes to different areas on his donkey cart to deliver his customers' orders. He has been in this business for over ten years.

Nighat is applying for the first time for a loan from Asasah (a micro-finance institute in Pakistan) to purchase embroidery items in bulk (beads, colored threads, sketches and fabric) to expand her embroidery business.
