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 $1,200 helped to purchase new winter shoes for selling.


Imran's story

Imran K. is 37 years old. He is married with two children. His wife is a housekeeper and Imran is a market vendor selling shoes for men in the local market. After 13 years of working at the market, Imran already has enough experience to do his work successfully. He has clients who always buy from him and now he is trying to satisfy the needs of clients with various tastes and income levels. He works very hard to give his children a good education and to cover their basic needs.


Imran is planning to increase his working capital in order to purchase new winter shoes for selling. For this purpose, he has applied for $1200. He promises to repay the loan promptly and thanks all for supporting him.
