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).

Malik's story

Malik has always been a hardworking man, who has made sure, from a young age, that his family never goes without their daily bread. He is married with two children. He has a grocery store where he sells different kinds of foodstuffs such as sweets, soft drinks, juices, and other items.

With a starting capital of 200 AZN, he began this enterprise 2 years ago in order to support his children and parents. Today, he needs to buy additional foodstuffs to increase the range of goods he sells. With this purpose in mind, he is requesting a loan of 1,000 AZN. He is ready to work even harder, make sacrifices and push every once and awhile to achieve his goal and become a successful entrepreneur.
