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 $850 helped to purchase building materials to repair her house.


Kumushoi's story

Ten years ago, a hardworking woman named Kumush began activity in the area of crop cultivation. She started her business in the hopes of making a profit to support her family, for home improvement, and the education of their children in order to raise them as educated people. Kumush and her husband have lived in Husan over 20 years. Her husband, a caring, educated family man and her are raising three children.

Basically, she grows barley on 4 hectares of conventionally irrigated land, as well as cattle. Improving living conditions is costly, so she sent two sons to work abroad. Kumush would like to get a loan to buy building materials and pay workers in the construction of her house. She looks forward to your help and kindness.
