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).

Batzaya's story

Batzaya, 31, lives with her husband in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. They live in a ger, which is a Mongolian nomadic housing tent, on the outskirts of the city.

Batzaya started her retail trading business in 1998. Now she sells clothing at a local market. Her husband owns a car which he sometimes uses as a taxi in order to support his wife's business. Batzaya is a modest person who wants to expand her business in order to buy a house where she and her husband can live a comfortable life. She is requesting a loan of 2,500,000 MNT to purchase more clothing for her business and to increase her working capital.
