A loan of $975 helps to pay for construction work on her house in order to have a safe home.


Shafoat's story

Shafoat was born in 1967 in Istaravshan, Tajikistan. This wonderful woman is married and cares for three children.

She is a honest, sociable and kind woman. She always tries to have a good relationship with people.

She is engaged in cattle breeding. She carefully looks after animals and sells them in a good price in a market, earning income she uses for family expenses.

Also, Shafoat has an agriculture activity. She grows vegetables for sale to local citizens.

Shafoat lives in an old house, which needs to be repaired as soon as possible. She wants to begin construction work in her house, but she has not enough money for this.

Therefore, she is asking for your help. She will use this loan with Kiva’s partner IMON for construction expenses so she can secure herself and her family with a safe home.

Shafoat hopes that you will support her in this important issue.


This loan is special because:

It supports low-income female farmers while minimizing interest payments.
