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).

Umarali's story

Umarali is married and is a responsible father of four children. He has been involved in growing agricultural crops for over 33 years. He primarily grows wheat, barley and watermelons. Umarali is also involved in animal husbandry. His wife, son and daughter-in-law help him with the business. Umarali wants to expand his business, make a good profit and hold a hatnatuy (circumcision) ceremony for his grandson. Umarali is requesting this loan for the purchase of cattle and sheep to fatten up, then sell them and earn an additional income.
