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 $1,025 helped to purchase variety of clothing to sell.


Sarwat's story

Sarwat owns a small clothing business in the area of Lahore, Pakistan. She purchases variety of clothes from the main city and and sells them in her community.
She is a 41-year-old, hard-working and honest woman and a responsible mother of 2 children. She is an active borrower of BRAC Pakistan. She is currently in need of purchasing a variety of clothing to sell. But, due to financial constraints, she finds it difficult. Therefore, she has requested a loan for 100,000 PKR from Kiva's partner, BRAC Pakistan. This will not only help her to grow her business but will also increase her net income and savings. She is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakistan.
