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 $1,250 helped a member buy a few goats.


Shahnaz's Group's story

I have lived all of my life in a small city called Chichawatni in Pakistan. I am a widow and a mother of two kids. I raise goats to supplement my work as a day laborer. When these goats reach a reasonable age I sell them at a decent price. I want to buy a few additional goats for my business.

There are four other women in my loan group: Nazira B., who is borrowing for her grocery store; Walan B., who will invest her share of the loan to buy a machine for their business; Manzoora B., who embroiders clothes; and Parween A., who wants to buy a donkey cart. These women are very cooperative and will repay your loan on time in a responsible manner.

In this group: Shahnaz, Nazira, Walan, Manzoora, Parween
