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).

Batzorig's story

Batzorig is a 23-year-old single man who lives with his parents in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. Batzorig’s mother is unemployed and looks after the household, and his father works in local council as a water distributor, distributing fresh water to slum district households.

Batzorig runs a taxi business using his family's car. To run a taxi business without a warm garage is impossible, especially in the winter, because during winter nights cars freeze and people always have trouble starting them.

Last year Batzorig started building a warm garage for his car and at the moment the basement is completed. The loan Batzorig is taking out will be used to complete the garage building project with the purchase of bricks, cement, and a garage door.
