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 $400 helped to buy stocks of rice, sugar, and flour.


Hajran's story

Hajran is a 41-year-old, married woman and she has been running a small general store in her community for many years. She offers a variety of grocery items at a reasonable price and she has retained many customers who regularly shop at her store. She makes enough money to provide for her family.

To fully stock her store, Hajran requested a loan for PKR 40,000, which she will use to buy stocks of rice, sugar, and flour from the market at lower rates. In this way, she would be able to consistently meet the increasing demand. She wishes to utilize part of her revenues to increase her business capital.
