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).

Shijir's story

Shijir is 35 years old and lives with his three children and wife in a ger (a Mongolian yurt) in Zavhan Province, Mongolia. His eldest daughter goes to high school, and his two sons go to kindergarden. His wife is currently unemployed and sometimes sells livestock. He started his business in 2007 by transporting goods and products between cities. Before, he used to drive a truck. He switched the truck for a minivan. He is a diligent and hardworking man who says, "I do my best to bring good service to my clients. I also want to provide a good education and good living conditions for my children." He is requesting a 2,000,000-Mongolian-tugrik (MNT) loan to purchase goats.
