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 $2,425 helped to buy more products to sell at her store.

Zulayya's story

Zulayya is 37 years old, and a married mother of three children. She sells a variety of products in her shop, such as sugar, sweets, dish washer, and shampoo. Her husband is a driver. She has eight years of experience in the shopkeeping field. People in her town are the regular customers for purchasing food products and other available items at the store. Her monthly profit from selling products is 150 AZN.

Her elder son helps her to sell products in the shop. She is a very successful entrepreneur, because of the shop's good location in the bazaar of her home city. Zulayya wants to expand her business and to buy more products, because this business is only one financial income in her family. For this purpose, she applied for a loan of 1,900 AZN. She has a good client history; this will be her fourth loan.
