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).

Sayramby's story

The house where Sayramby lives is not up to housing standards and she urgently needs to make some repairs. She is 28 years old, married and is raising two children. Her kids are still minors, students in school. They are constantly asking their parents to repair their home, but their income is not enough to do so. Sayramby works on a farm and her husband is a migrant worker in Russia. She needs to repair all rooms in the home. Sayramby is asking for a loan of 3,000 KGS to buy constructional materials like paint and putty. She awaits your kindness and relies on your mercy.
