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).

Uktamjon's story

Uktamjon has been involved in animal husbandry since childhood, since his father worked as a herdsman. He is a loving husband and the responsible father of three children. To support his family he began to raise animals 10 years ago. His business has continued successfully. Uktamjon is requesting a loan of 3000 somoni to increase his herd. He wants to use the profit he earns to pay for his daughter's wedding, and later his son's. Uktamjon is trusting in your kindness and generosity.
