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).

Tahira's story

Ms Tahira is a 43-year-old married woman. She is a mother of three children, and all are school going. Her husband is a low salaried employee. Three years ago, Tahira decided to contribute to her household's earnings and started a business of leather jackets’ sales. In this way she is able to manage her children’s educational expenses. This is a profitable business and she wants to expand it.

In order to purchase more leather jackets of different colors and designs, she received a loan of PKR 30,000 from Kashf. She has been in association with Kashf for three years. The loan will help her to increase her sales, which will ultimately help in generating more cash. She desires to spend part of the revenue on the betterment of her family members.
