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).

A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase the some spare parts for his new minivan.


Lkhagvasuren's story

Mr. Lkhagvasuren, 47, earns a living using his minivan to transport passengers around Kherlen, a boundary town of Mongolia. He has been in this business since 2009 and already has permanent clients. He lives with his wife in a ger, a traditional, nomadic Mongolian yurt. He wants to slowly improve his business and, eventually, to have his own passenger transportation agency.

Recently, Mr. Lkhagvasuren purchased a new minivan because his previous one was very old and heavily damaged, making it difficult to use for his business. Now he needs a loan to purchase some spare parts for his new minivan.
