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).

Etibarkhan's story

Etibarkhan is fifty-three and is raising one son. In search of a source of income for the family, she started a business in 2006 selling nuts and dried fruit with starting capital of 10,000KGS. After leasing space at the market, she put all her energy into developing the business and achieved success. She became one of the leading suppliers and vendors of dried fruit at the market. At present Etibarkhan doesn't have a wide enough assortment of items, so she has turned to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan of 110,000KGS. Buying inventory will allow her to widen her selection, enhance the quality of her clientele and boost sales. In the future she plans to expand her business further.
