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 $375 helped to buy a stock of different cloth of the summer season.

Kubra's story

Ms. Kubra is a 37-year-old, married woman, and a mother of four children. For many years, she has been running a business of trading cloth. She purchases a variety of cloth from the main city and then sells it to the people of her community. By this time, she has become famous for selling good-quality cloth in her community. She has gradually improved her business with the support of Kashf Foundation.

Currently, Kubra has requested a loan of PKR 35,000 from Kashf Foundation to buy a stock of different cloth of the summer season, by taking into account the choices and tastes of her customers. In this way, she would be able to earn more income through her greater sales.

Kubra is in her fifth loan cycle, with good repayment history. She hopes to have a good experience with this new loan and wants to grow her business. She dreams of giving a good and quality education to her children through all her hard efforts in her business.
