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).

Munawar's story

Munawar is a 51-year-old married woman. She has been in the business of making footballs for a period of about 20 years. She makes balls in different sizes and sells them in her community and in the local market. She is contributing much to the family income, as her husband’s income alone is not sufficient to fulfill the basic necessities of his family members.

Munawar is a motivated mother of five children. She reliably provides them with good quality food, education and clothing through her business. She contacted the Kashf Foundation for a loan of Rs 30,000 to purchase rubber bladders and leather covers in a large quantities, along with some spools of thread to complete her orders on time.

She is in her 3rd loan cycle and is hopeful of getting an increase in her sales, which ultimately will help in generating more cash. She dreams of expanding her business and desires to use part of the profits on her children’s education.
