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 $1,325 helped a member to buy a cow for getting milk.


Kishwar's Group's story

Kishwar is a 39-year-old, married woman. For the past six years, she has been successfully running a business, selling milk to the people of her community. She has one buffalo. She has become famous in her locality for providing good-quality milk. She has a good client list and makes enough money to contribute to her family's income.

Kishwar is a loving mother of five children. Her husband works as a mason and earns insufficient income to support the needs of the family members.

In order to inflate her sales, Kishwar needs to purchase an additional cow. For this, she requested a loan from Kiva's field partner BRAC Pakistan, to buy an additional cow.

She expects a boost in her earnings with her loan and plans to spend her profits on expanding her business. She gives thanks to Kiva and to its field partner, BRAC Pakistan.
