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).

Noreen's story

Noreen is the mother of three children who all go to school. Ten years ago her family was having a difficult time after her husband's business failed, so she decided to go to work. She began sewing from her house for people in her neighborhood and uses the income to support her entire family.

However, due to a lack of money she has found herself unable to meet the daily demands of her customers. She is applying for a 20,000 PKR loan from the Kashf Foundation to purchase more spools of thread, packs of buttons and zippers in different colors. This will help her to complete her customers’ orders without fail. She is working hard to provide a better standard of living for her children.
