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).

Chynarkan's story

Chynarkan is 51 years old, married and raising a 16 year-old son. She has been involved in animal husbandry for 16 years, having started this business with a sum of 4,000 som. Thanks to her hard work, today Chynarkan's business contains 25 sheep. Sales of meat and meat products yield about 5,000 som per month. In order to further develop her business, Chynarkan requested a loan in the amount of 30,000 som (KGS) from the "Bai-Tushum and Partners" company to purchase sheep for offspring. She plans to invest the earnings from the loan into paying for her son's education.
