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).

Arevhat's story

Arevhat lives in the Shirak region of Armenia in the village of Pokr Mantash. She is married and has a 32-year-old son. She considers herself a hardworking and honest person and has been able to run the family farm for the past 20 years. In addition to supporting her family, she helps relatives nearby with produce grown on the farm. Arevhat would like her grandchildren to receive a university education. She is looking for a loan to purchase livestock and feed. According to her business plan, this investment will increase her income by 15%. Arevhat’s capital investment in the farm is around six times more than her outstanding debt. She is pleased with the services of microfinance and the services provided in Pokr Mantash.
