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).

A loan of $825 helped to roof his new pigsty.


Artak's story

Artak V. is 30 years old. He lives in Ghashtarak village in the Ijevan area. Artak is married and has two preschool-aged daughters. Since 2008 he has been working in village administration, and at the same time he is engaged in pig breeding and land cultivation.

In the future Artak hopes to increase his number of pigs. Recently began building a new pigsty for his pigs, because the old one is tumbledown and very small. He has completed building the walls for the new pigsty, and now he needs a 300,000 AMD loan to roof it.
