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 $1,850 helped to build an animal stable.

Lihe's story

Lihe is 36 years old and married with four children: the oldest is 14 years old and the youngest is 10 months old. She and her family live in the northwest rural part of the country where most of the residents including her are involved in the livestock industry. She has been selling milk and baby calves to the locals for the past eight years, and she says that the profit has been ok, yet not enough to cover extra expenses. With the birth of the baby girl, her daily trips to local market to sell the milk have been presenting a challenge to her because she has to find neighbors to look after the baby until she comes back at no cost.

Anyways, now that the winter is kicking in soon in her region, Lihe feels she should build a stable so that her animals won’t be challenged by the tough weather. This is the reason why she is requesting this loan this time (this is not her first one, it is the fourth, and the previous ones have been repaid).
Lihe appreciates the opportunity she has been given to publish her loan information on Kiva in order to get some financial help through lenders.
