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).

Chuluun's story

Chuluun is a 50-year-old woman who lives with her two children in a ger (Mongolian yurt) in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Her elder child is now employed and the younger one is a college student. She started her meat retailing business in 2000 by renting a counter in a market. Over the years she gained many trusted suppliers and regular customers. Now that her child is in college, she needs to expand her business. She rented another counter in a market; however, she needs 2,500,000 MNT in order to buy more meat at wholesale prices to run the counter.
