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).

Anara's story

Anara is 35 years old and raising three school-age children.

In 2000, in search of a source of income to support her family, she started her own business selling women's and children's clothes with an initial amount of 5,000 som (KGS). Through persistence and hard work, Anara was able to expand her business and she is now making a monthly income of 15,000 som (KGS).

Her assortment of merchandise is currently limited, and this is why she has turned to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 120,000 som (KGS).

With the earnings from her loan, Anara is planning to perform some repairs in her apartment and, in the future, she will invest her profits into expanding her business.
