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).

Muhabbat's story

N. Muhabbat is 47 years old. She’s married and the loving mother of 4 children. Her husband is an entrepreneur. Muhabbat is sells shoes for women and kids in the local market. She has been in this business for 3 years. Like any mother, she wants her children to have everything they need and dreams that all of them shall have a higher education.



Because goods such as shoes for women and kids have good demand regardless of the season of the year, Muhabbat's business is stable and generates considerable income, allowing Muhabbat to support her family. Now Muhabbat needs to increase her working capital to be able to purchase summer shoes. For this she requests 1000 USD for the term of 12 months. Muhabbat thanks everyone for supporting her and promises to be timely in her loan payments.
