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 $1,175 helped to purchase fabric, threads, and another electrical sewing machine.


Najwa's story

Najwa was born in 1969, is divorced, and is trying to support herself financially with her sewing project that she started 3 years ago. She plans to increase profits by raising her productivity through purchasing a larger quantity of fabric, threads and updating her sewing machines. She has applied for this loan because she does not have enough money to purchase these items.
