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).

Sheeman Bibi's Group's story

Sheeman bibi lives in the area of Anwerabad which is in a city called Vehari in Pakistan. She is living in a poor financial condition and that’s why she has to work to support her husband. A very shy lady, Sheeman operates a domestic-sewing business for her neighborhood clients.

Sheeman bibi has applied for a loan from Asasah for her husband who has been involved in the business of scrap for the last six years. With the loan he will buy more scrap material that will enhance his income due to the availability of more stock.

Sheeman bibi has been married for the last fifteen years but she does not have any children. That’s why she operates her sewing business to spend her time.
