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).

Gantsooj's story

Gantsooj, 34 years old, lives with his wife and two children in Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. His wife works as a nurse at a local hospital and his daughter goes to high school. His three-year-old son goes to kindergarten. Gantsooj, himself, has a position as a gas fitter at a filling station.

The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. The house they live in has windows and walls that are vulnerable to strong storms and winds. So, Gantsooj is requesting a loan of 1,200,000 MNT to purchase insulation materials such as fiberglass and foam. Using these materials he can insulate his house, thus providing warm and comfortable accommodation for his family. Gantsooj is a very hard-working individual who strives for a better future.
