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).

Enkhsaikhan's story

Mr. Enkhsaikhan, 38 is a taxi driver and has been running his business for 6 years around the districts of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He lives with his wife and his 3 daughters in a ger, a Mongolian traditional nomadic tent. His wife is unemployed, caring for her children at home. Currently his business is a main income source of this family. Enkhsaikhan works 12-15 hours in a day and his taxi earnings do not usually meet with his family expenses. Two of his daughters attend state college and their school fees are high in a year.
Lately his taxi car has been becoming bad and damaged its body. This influences his service quality and income, as well as customers safety and satisfaction. Therefore he is taking a loan to purchase the new car body for his old taxi car renovation.
