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).

Nisreen's story

Nisreen, who was born in 1964, is a married mother of four. Her husband is a driver. Nisreen has been helping her husband in paying their household expenses for three years now by sewing clothes and selling them from her house. Her sociability has helped her build a good customer base.

Nisreen is seeking to raise her productivity and so is requesting a loan to buy more raw materials such as buttons and fabric for her business.
