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.org

Ashurali is 40 years old. He works as an electrician in the Gissar region. He has a wife and four children. His wife sells pistachios at the market. As the head of the family, Ashurali aims to increase the family's income by starting a new business. He has chosen to go into beekeeping. His home and plot of land are located in a distant area, where there are no industrial enterprises, farmland or apiaries, which makes it a very good place to raise bees. Ashurali has several houses for bees. He has engaged in this trade before and has good experience. Now, he wants to restart and grow his business. Ashurali needs a loan for the purchase of bees and beehives. Once he buys them, he can begin his business.

I chose this loan because... ..bees reminds me of good summers in my childhood. My grandfather was a dedicated beekeeper and a wise old man. He used to observe nature (including bees) and tell all kinds of life wisdom by it.
