Help us reach $600,000 by December 31!

Dear Kiva Lender,

Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers every week, but since Kiva doesn't take a fee on your loans we rely on donations from lenders like you to keep doing this important work. If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $20 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31! Thanks for your continuing partnership in making the world a fairer place.

In service, Premal Shah, President,

Kiva Loan Dedication



Ulziibat is 37 years old. She lives with her husband and 2 sons in Orhon province of Mongolia. Her husband works at a mining company in the summertime. In the wintertime, he produces shoes at home. Her 2 sons go to secondary school. Ulziibat is a hardworking and good natured person. Mrs. Ulziibat has been running an organic fruit and vegetable retailing business since 2011, with working capital of 2,000,000 MNT. Now her working capital has increased to 3,000,000 MNT. Her business has improved and now she sells many kinds of organic fruits and vegetables. She imports high quality products. Her next goals are to enlarge her counter and then to open her own wholesale shop. She requests 6,500,000 MNT to import more organic apples, watermelons and tomatoes from Selenge province to increase her working capital, then her transport costs will decrease.

I chose this loan because... this borrower works selling organic fruits and vegetables and I know how important those are for you. Maybe we can go to Mongolia together some day...
