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).

Banzragch's story

Banzragch C. is 53 years old and lives with his wife and two children in Tosontsengel, a city of Zavhan province, western Mongolia. His wife operates a clothing sewing business and his elder son works in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia while the youngest son attends a local middle school. The family has been living in their current home for 22 years. Banzragch makes iron items in his own shop near the family home. He started this business in 1995 and has since made quality products for the people of his province. He has found out the advantage of his business is that there are very few people in his province operating an ironsmith business supplying local citizens with ironwork products. Banzragch also wants to expand his business by making more products and further improve his family’s financial situation and the quality of life. Banzragch is a very modest person. He is requesting a 3,000,000 MNT loan to buy more iron and welding products for his business.
