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).

Zamira's story

Zamira is a member of of the group "Azamat". She is 48 years old, married, and has three children. In order to make an income, Zamira started farming eighteen years ago. Through her hard work, Zamira now has two cows. She makes 4,000 som (KGS) selling dairy products. Zamira also farms one hectare of land where she grows mostly potatoes and wheat. In order to further develop her business, Samira asked Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan of 80,000 som (KGS) to purchase calves. Zamira plans to use money she makes from the loan to build new barn for her livestock since the old roof collapsed.
