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 a stock of different clothes for the summer season.


Safia's story

Safia is a 49-year-old married woman and the mother of three children. She has been running a business of selling clothes for many years. She purchases a variety of clothes from the main city and then sells them to the people of her vicinity. She has become famous for selling good quality clothes in her community.

She requested a loan of PKR 40,000 from Kashf Foundation to buy a stock of different clothes for the summer season, by taking into account the choices and tastes of her customers. In this way, she would be able to earn more income through her greater sales. She hopes to have a good experience with this new loan and wants to grow her business. She dreams of giving a good and quality education to her children through all her hard efforts in her business.
