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).

Gagik's story

Gagik V. was born in 1970. He is married with two daughters. Gagik’s older daughter is a student, and younger one is a pupil. For over 20 years Gagik has been a bee keeper in Nerkin Hand village, an area of Kapan. He likes his occupation very much and therefore works very hard. Gagik sells his honey to villagers, and also distributes honey to Kapan and Yerevan cities. Thanks to his business income Gagik provides for his family’s needs and pays for his older daughter’s education.
Gagik needs a 600,000 AMD loan to increase the number of his bee hives, and also to buy wax paper and frames for his business. This is Gagik’s fifth loan from Nor Horizon. He has never delayed his repayments.
