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).

Altantsetseg's story

Altantsetseg J. is 49 years old and lives with her husband and two sons in the Songinohairhan district of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. She and her family live together in their own apartment. Her younger son attends high school and her husband operates a taxi service, using his own car, to supplement the family income.

Altantsetseg operates a car-repair and service business with three other business partners. She began her business in 1998, repairing a variety of cars' bodies in the local market, and has since gained significant experience as a wheelwright.

Today, she and her business partners work together in their shop to provide a car-repair service to their customers. Their daily business income has reached 100000 MNT. Altantsetseg is responsible for painting the cars' bodies.

For the future, she hopes to continue operating her business with stable operation. She is a very friendly and hard-working woman and says, " I am planning to buy my own car."

She is requesting a 1000000 MNT loan in order to purchase more materials and supplies for her car-repair business.
