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 $575 helped to enhance the teaching area at her house.

Sahar's story

Sahar is 37 years old and a widow, who has been working as school teacher for people with special needs and learning difficulties for almost a year now.

Before finding this job, Sahar always dreamt of helping people with special needs in their life, and since it is expensive to send those kids to a special needs school, she started giving private lessons at her house, specially to people who have learning difficulties.

Now Sahar has both jobs, one at the school and the other at her house after work. Since she has experience on how to approach her students, she added giving English lessons as one of her services.

Now Sahar has applied for this loan to enhance the teaching area at her house so she can provide the best service for her customers.
