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).

Gulzar's story

Ms Gulzar is a 36-year-old married woman. The man shown in the photo is Gulzar’s husband who is a wholesaler by profession. He purchases different types of goods from the market and then sells them to various shops using his motorcycle. He has been doing this business for many years to meet the family expenses. In order to increase sales; Gulzar has applied for a loan of Rs. 30,000 to Kashf Foundation. With this, her husband would be able to purchase more items such as packs of biscuits, grains, juices and sweets. Gulzar is hopeful that this loan will be a productive one for her husband and will bring positive changes to his business.
