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).

Aliaga's story

Aliaga, a 59-year-old man who lives in Imishli with his wife and their four children, has owned a grocery store for almost 10 years. He decided to start this business because he wanted to work independently. He sells canned food, candies, drinks, eggs, bread, etc.. Aliaga is special in his work because he knows how to treat his clients who are his friends and neighbors. He requested a loan, his first, from AqroInvest in order to purchase merchandise for his store. When Aliaga first started his business, he successfully confronted both financial issues and competition. In the future, he plans to expand his enterprise.
