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 $825 helped a member to buy old warm clothes for her thread selling business.


Bashiraan's Group's story

Bashiraan has applied for a loan from Kiva partner Asasah for her thread making business. With the loan investment, she will purchase old warm clothes like sweaters and then gets thread from it to sell at the local market for a profit. She is a very creative minded and skilful lady and earns reasonably good income from her business.

Her husband is a laborer by profession. His income is not confirmed every day because some days he doesn’t get any work. Bashiraan has given birth to a son who is young and works as a mason. She is also a very good housewife and performs her household duties very well along with her business.
She is confident that she will successfully be able to make good use of the loan and improve her business.
