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).

Iderbat's story

Iderbat, 31, is married and lives with his wife and two children in Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia. They live in their own house on a small plot of land that they own. His wife works as a teacher and his elder son attends a local school. They have an average standard of living.

Iderbat worked as a manual laborer in Korea for a few years. When he came back to Mongolia, he started driving a taxi. He supports his family with the money he earns. He plans to start selling cell phones in the near future in addition to his taxi service. He is a hardworking and modest person who says, "I want to begin selling cellphones in order to increase my income". He is requesting a loan of 2,200,000 MNT to buy cellphones from Erlian for his new business.
