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 $425 helped to buy bundles of cloth for the summer season.

Shehnaz's story

Shehnaz is a hard working married woman. She is the mother of three children and is keen to provide them with the basic necessities of life. She has been selling cloth for many years. She sells to the people of her community and uses the income to support her entire family. However, due to lack of availability of funds, she is unable to meet with the daily demands of her customers. For this reason, she requested a loan of 40,000 PKR from Kashf Foundation. She intends to use this loan amount to buy bundles of cloth for the summer season. It will help her to meet the increasing demands of her customers to generate a healthier source of income. She is in her seventh loan cycle and thankful to Kashf for its tremendous support.
