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).

A loan of $2,525 helped to purchase 13 pigs.

Mykola's story

Mykola is married and has three children: two sons and a daughter.

He worked as a taxi driver for eight years, but a year ago, he decided to redirect his business activity and started a pig farm. He breeds pigs in his home town of Ivano-Frankivsk. Mykola raises pigs and butchers them to sell meat wholesale to local market vendors. He makes about 13,000 UAH of income every month.

Mykola is requesting a 20,000 UAH loan to purchase 13 additional pigs for the farm. He is hoping to grow pigs and generate additional income by selling meat in bulk. Mykola has two hired butchers who are helping at the farm and another employee who helps with transportation services.

Mykola has recently purchased a two-room apartment for his family. He is planning to invest his profit in further refurbishment of his housing.
