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 $1,925 helped to purchase two cows and fodder for her livestock.

Altantuya's story

Altantuya S. is 30 years old and lives with her husband and three children in a rented house in Tuv province in central Mongolia. Her older son attends a local secondary school. Her youngest daughter is at home.

Her husband has a small truck and he carries people's loads, using his truck to support his family. From 1999 to 2006, the family lived in the countryside as a nomadic lifestyle. Since 2006, after moving from the countryside to the central city of Tuv province, they brought their milking cows to sell milk and yogurts. She has many permanent customers.

She is a very generous and open-minded person. She says, "I plan to increase the number of cows and establish a cow farming." She is requesting a 2,500,000 Mongolian tugriks (MNT) loan to purchase two cows at 1,500,000 MNT as well as 1,000,000 MNT for fodder for her livestock.
