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).

Haji Mohammad's story

Haji Mohammad is the son of Haji Mohammad Gul. He was born in 1976 and now lives in District 3 of Kabul. He is married and has a family of nine people. He has a cosmetics shop, which is how he earns his income. At first his business was not doing well because he started his business with little money and only a small stock of clothes and cosmetics. Customers wanted to purchase products that he didn't have available. Therefore, he decided to take a loan. Now he is running his shop more efficiently because he has more products and can better handle his clients' needs.
