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).

Mukhabat's story

Mukhabat is 49 years old, married and has raised four children. While looking for a source of income for her family Mukhabat started her business in 1995 doing animal husbandry with a starting capital of 1,000 som (KGS). Through persistence and hard work Mukhabat was able to grow her business with a monthly income of 10,000 KGS from the sale of milk and dairy products. With the goal to increase the headcount of livestock by buying two milk cows and six sheep Mukhabat has come to Bai Tushum and Partners for a loan in the amount of 100,000 KGS. Mukhabat plans to invest the income from the loan to repair her home and in the future into growth of her business.
