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).

Shaarkul's story

Shaarkul is a 53-year-old widow who has raised 5 children. She works as a custodian in the local school, and also raises livestock as a source of additional income, having started this business in 2009. Thanks to Shaarkul's dedicated work, her business, launched with a sum of 18,000 som, currently earns profits of 4,000 som (KGS) per month from sales of milk and dairy products. In order to continue developing her business, Shaarkul has turned to Bai Tushum & Partners for a loan of 50,000 som (KGS) to purchase additional livestock. She plans to invest the profits from this loan into further expansion of her business.
