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).

Over the years, she has built a stable and successful business operation. She hopes to expand her business by enlarging her workplace. With this loan, she is planning to increase her product line. Currently, she sells a variety of foodstuffs in her small wooden pavilion. She hopes to improve her workplace by making it a bigger space in the future. Naranchimeg is requesting a 2,000,000 tugrik loan to purchase a large quantity of foodstuffs at wholesale prices to sell back as a retailer and to expand her product line.
