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 $325 helped to maintain a donkey cart.

Parveen's story

Parveen is a 35-year-old housewife. She lives in Lahore, Pakistan. She is a mother of four children. Her husband is the only person earning an income in the family. He delivers luggage, grass, and water by donkey cart. He values a donkey cart more than any other possession because it can make money for him to sustain his family life. He needs capital for the maintenance of his donkey cart. However, due to financial constraints, he finds it difficult.

Therefore, his wife Parveen has requested a loan of 30,000 PKR from Kiva's partner BRAC Pakistan so that she can help her husband. Her husband wants to purchase a vehicle to earn money instead of using the donkey cart. So with the profits, they will save to purchase a vehicle in the future. Parveen is very thankful to Kiva and BRAC Pakiatan.
