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).

In order to develop his business, Sharshenbek obtained two loans from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company in 2008 and repaid both in a timely manner. In order to further grow his business, Sharshenbek requested a loan in the sum of 135,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase calves for fattening up. He plans use the profits from this loan to increase livestock quantity and improve his family's living conditions.
