Dear Kiva Lender,

Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers every week, but since 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans we rely on donations from supporters like you to continue this important work. If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $25 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,

Kanymbu lives in the Lenin-Zhol village in the south of Kyrgyzstan. Much like many families in the rural area, Kanymbu and her husband fatten up livestock, having started this business with an initial sum of 8,000 som (KGS). Today, she keeps bulls in her household, and sales of meat products allows the family to earn about 9,000 som (KGS) per month. In order to further expand her business, Kanymbu requested a loan in the sum of 100,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase additional heads of livestock for fattening up and resale. She plans to invest the profits into building a large shed for livestock.
