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).

Shahnaz's story

Shahnaz, 32 years old, is a very enthusiastic person. She has been successfully running a general store for a period of about six years. She offers a variety of daily use products and has a good client base.

In order to avoid shortages, Shahnaz needs to have various goods in stock to efficiently meet customer demand. She has requested a loan of PKR 30,000, which she will use to buy additional grocery items, including oil, milk, sugar, and juices. In this way, she will be able to consistently meet the increasing demand at her store and make better earnings.

She is in her fifth loan cycle and has shown good repayment behavior. She hopes to grow her business, and to better support the needs of her four children.
