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).

Mr. Jargal is 48 years old, married, and a father of three children. He lives in Dornod, a province of Mongolia, with his wife and two children. He works as a welder at local thermal power station. He has been doing this job for five years, and he managed to buy his own land and a house. His wife is on the dole. He is a very diligent father and husband. He works hard to support his wife and two daughters. His elder son lives in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He just got married and started to build his own house. However, because of a lack of money he couldn’t finish the house before winter. Jargal is requesting a loan to help his son to purchase the building materials to finish building the house.
