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).

Manya's story

Manya lives in Vanadzor with her husband. She has two children, a son and a daughter, who are already married and live separately from their parents.

For almost 15 years Manya has managed a shop, where she sells toys, tableware, souvenirs, perfumery and household goods. Her husband helps her in the business and her son brings merchandise from Yerevan to Vanadzor and helps in the shop when needed as well.

With the profit from her business, Manya and her son support their families. Manya needs a loan of 1,000,000 Armenian drams to buy a large lot of toys and household goods, which will allow her to increase her business income in the near future. Manya has received loans from Nor Horizon 12 times and she has never delayed in her loans repayments.
