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).

Shahla's Group's story

Shahla has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for the further expansion of her husband’s spare parts business. He started his business 10 years ago with a small investment. Now he is well established in his business but he needs continuous investment to purchase spare parts for his shop. He is a very hard worker with a good business sense. Shahla is hopeful that her husband’s business will bring more profits to him after making an investment into it.

She is a mother of five children. Two of her children are studying while her other three children are young and not of school-going age yet. Shahla is a very active and supportive lady who does her household responsibilities very well and tries her best to provide comfort to her family.

Note: In the photo, the lady with a book (called Asasah Passbook) is Shahla.
