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).

Bashiraan's Group's story

Bashiraan is 46 years old, married and has children. Her eldest son operates a cosmetics selling business and earns a good profit. He also has some good clients.

Her husband sells balloons of different shapes which attracts many children towards him. He has good sales everyday.

Bashiraan also supports her husband financially by making Pranday (ornament used to tie up hairs and it is very popular among women) that sells for a very good price.

Besides her business, she also manages her household very well.

She has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her eldest son, for his cosmetic selling business. With the loan, he will buy cosmetics such as eye shadow, mascara, nail polish, etc. in bulk.

He has operated his business for many years and Bashiraan is hopeful that an investment will help him make his business more profitable.
