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 $1,000 helped to open a small shop for selling clothes.


Sabha's story

Sabha, 50 years old, is a housewife who had four sons to raise.

Sabha has been doing her retail business for the last four years now, selling women's clothes at home. She started by selling to the people she knows like relatives, friends and neighbors. Then the word about the clothes she sells reached more people from other neighborhoods who came asking to buy from her.

Sabha has applied for a loan to open a small shop for selling the clothes she has, where she can show them in an attractive way, and to have a place that everyone can reach.
