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).

Battsooj's story

Mr. Battsooj is 40 years old and lives with his wife and three children in a ger (Mongolian yurt). His wife, Nasanbayar, is 40 years old. His oldest daughter, Naymdelger, and his younger son, Myagmarsuren, are secondary school students while his younger daughter, Azbileg, stays at home.

With the help of his wife, Mr. Battsooj started his business in 2003 by selling meat at the local market. Currently his wife stays home and takes care of the youngest child. But his wife would like to run an art-making business out of the home to increase the family's income.

Mr. Battsooj is a hardworking and diligent man. He needs 4,000,000 MNT to buy raw materials for his wife's new business.
