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).

Hovhannes's story

Hovhannes G. is from the village of Akhouryan in the Shirak region of Armenia. He is happily married and, together with his wife, has been working on the family farm for the past ten years. He hopes to save enough money someday to renovate the family home. In addition to providing for his family, Hovhannes also helps his brother’s family with produce grown on the family farm.

Hovhannes would like a loan to purchase animal feed. He expects the family income to increase by twenty five percent with this investment. He enjoys living in Akhuryan and is surrounded by his relatives and good friends.
