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).

Zaujat Z., 29, is married with two children, ages 1 and 2. In 2007, Zaujat started selling clothes, and she works everyday from 7am to 6pm at her business.


Previously, Zaujat had received a loan from BRAC Tanzania to expand her business. She now hopes for a loan to buy more items for her business. She will share this loan with her subgroup members, who have businesses selling wood, selling items in a shop, and tailoring.
