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 $1,150 helped to cover the payment for a rental house for a cafeteria business.

Byambatogtokh's story

Mr. Byambatogtokh, 29, runs a taxi business around the districts of Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. He has been running his business since 2007, and once he changed his car to a better one. His business is a main income source of his family these days. Before, he used to work as a cook, but his salary did not usually meet his family’s necessities. Now he lives with his wife and his three children in his small, old house, which is in the slum district of the city.

His wife Bolormaa, 31, is unemployed but she is planning to start a new business such as a cafeteria near their home. Byambatogtokh has experience in this kind of business. They are planning to run their business in a rental house, so that Byambatogtokh needs 1,500,000 MNT to cover the rental payment of their cafeteria house at first.
