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).

Vafa's story

Vafa H. is 33 years old. She is not married and lives with her family. Vafa is an internally displaced person and has been relocated from Agdam and now lives in the region of Absheron.

It has been five years since Vafa has opened her beauty salon. She used to work as an assistant in her aunt's beauty salon. At this time she needs 2000 AZN to increase the area of the salon. She has many customers and this is why she wants to expand so that she can hire one more employee to attend to all her customers.
