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 $475 helped to buy bundles of different cloth for the summer season.


Akhtar's story

Akhtar is a 54-year-old married woman and the mother of three. She has been running a business of cloths sales for many years. She purchases a variety of cloths from the main city and then sells it to the people in her vicinity. She has become famous for selling good quality cloth in her community. Akhtar requested a loan of 45,000 PKR from Kashf Foundation to buy bundles of different cloth for the summer season by taking into account the choices and tastes of her customers. In this way, she will be able to earn more income through her greater sales. She hopes to have a good experience with this new loan and wants to grow her business. She dreams of providing a better standard of living for her family members.
