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).

Ilkin's story

Ilkin V. is a hard-working, persistent entrepreneur from Agsu in the northern part of Azerbaijan. He is married and has three children, and his wife actively helps him.

Eight years ago Ilkin decided to open his own small grocery business. Today, his business is successful, and he is looking to expand it further. Ilkin has requested a loan of 1,000 AZN so that he can purchase additional foodstuffs for his grocery. He plans to increase the variety of items he has available for customers to use in making ever-popular delicacies.

One of Ilkin’s goals for his business is to help his children as he can. We are happy for this opportunity to assist this responsible, dedicated business owner as he works to improve his livelihood.
