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 $600 helped to purchase a new grinding machine.

Naziran's story

Naziran is a 47-year-old married woman and a mother of five children. She has been providing flour grinding services in her community for many years. Her husband’s income is not sufficient to meet the needs of the family alone, so she started this business in her home to contribute to the family income. She has become famous for providing fine-quality flour and earns enough to support the needs of her family members. In order to purchase a new grinding machine, she contacted Kashf Foundation and applied for a loan of 60,000 PKR. The new grinder would help her cater to more customers time after time, which will ultimately help her in generating more cash. She wishes to spend part of the profits on the betterment of her family.
