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 $450 helped to purchase a greater selection of clothes in different sizes.

Imtiaz's story

Imtiaz is a 51-year-old married woman. Nine years ago she started her business selling clothes in her locality as her husband’s income was not sufficient to meet their household expenses alone. Imtiaz buys a variety of clothes from the main city and then sells them to the people of her locality. She always has a great collection to offer to her customers and earns a good amount of income to contribute to the family income.

At present, Imtiaz is requesting a loan of PKR 45,000, which will allow her to purchase a greater selection of clothes in different sizes by taking into account the taste and choice of her customers. She expects a boost in her net income through her increased sales. She is in her fourth loan cycle and has a good credit history.
