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).

Nisar's story

Ms Nisar is a 45-year-old married woman. Nisar and her husband are currently involved in a live stock business that is being run at their house. The man shown in the photo is Nisar’s husband. Her husband was running this activity alone since his childhood. But right after the marriage, Nisar felt that her husband is overburdened and unable to manage indoor and outdoor activities at the same time with efficiency. Then she decided to take charge of the in-house job of managing cattle. Both Nisar and her husband are happy with their business and have an idea of business expansion for the secure future of their children. They want to use the loan of Rs. 25,000 to purchase more goats right after the Eid-ul-Azha (a religious event of Muslims) so that they can get them at cheaper rates.
