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 $250 helped to purchase cosmetic products and chairs for her beauty salon.

Erum Naz's story

Erum Naz is 29 years old and a hardworking and independent woman. She is living in Rawalpindi, Pakistan, with her husband and two sons, both of whom are studying in third class. Her husband is a security guard and his income is not enough to meet the household expenses. For 4 years, Erum Naz has been running a beauty salon, and she wants to purchase some more cosmetic products and chairs for her beauty salon.

For that reason, she has requested a loan from Kiva partner, BRAC Pakistan. On getting a profit, first of all she will repay the loan amount to Kiva and then she wants to build a new room onto the salon, as the space in the salon is much too congested now. She hopes that her business grows more and she is very thankful to both Brac and Kiva.
