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).

Sandagsuren's story

Sandagsuren R. is 47 years old and lives with her husband and three children in Tuv province in central Mongolia. She and her daughter live in a house and enclosure. Her oldest son works as a teacher, her younger two children both attend university and her husband is a herder. Sandagsuren operates a meat trading business in her town. She sells a variety of meats to her customers in a rented stall at the local market. Tsevelmaa started her business in 2002 and has since gained a lot of experience as a businesswoman. Her business currently operates at a stable level and her earnings have enabled her to not only pay her children's tuition fees but also to provide for her family. She is requesting a 2,500,000 MNT loan to purchase and preserve more meat in order to increase her sales so that she can continue to afford paying her children's tuition fees.
