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).

Martun's story

Martun is involved in an agricultural business in the Achanan village, Syunik region, for over 14 years. He breeds cattle, chickens and rabbits and grows vegetables and fruits on his farm. Martun also leases land, where he grows wheat. He owns agricultural equipment and machinery, with the help of which he provides agricultural services in the villages of the Syunik region. Martun sells obtained agricultural products, such as vegetables, fruits, beef, milk, eggs and wheat, to his regular customers in the city of Kapan. During the agricultural season, from the beginning of spring to late autumn, providing services with the help of the agricultural equipment earns a good profit for Martun.
Martun is 51 years old, married and has four children: two sons and twin daughters. Along with the running of the agricultural business, Martun works as a forest ranger in the Kapan forestry. His wife works in the village commune. Martun's oldest son is the second-year student of the paid department of the Kapan European College, and the rest of the children attend a school.
Martun needs a loan in the amount of 1,000,000 dram to buy tires for his tractor, fertilizers and diesel fuel. Thanks to the agricultural business, Martun supports his family and pays for his oldest son's education.
