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).

Samina's Group's story

Samina has applied for a loan from KIVA partner Asasah for her husband’s business of catering. He offers his services at wedding ceremonies, parties, and functions.

With the loan investment, he will buy tents and other catering materials that will allow him to offer better services to his customers and increase his income.

Samina is the mother of two sons and three daughters. Her elder son operates a welding business while two of her remaining children are getting their education.

She is a housewife and performs her household duties by staying at home.

Samina is confident that the loan will be productive for her husband in his business and her family will be able to have a better financial life as a result.
