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 $1,275 helped to buy 8 sheep and cattle to raise and resell.

Yadigar's story

Yadigar is a 46 year-old man, married with two sons. He breeds sheep and cattle and sells them to local butchers. Yadigar has 10 years of experience in this field, thanks to his father, who taught him the best way to raise cattle.

Yadigar usually buys small cattle and lambs, raises and fattens them in 5-6 months and resells them for a more profitable price in the local livestock bazaar. Fur is also very popular among local people. Fur and meat selling brings 200 AZN in income per month. People use the meat in everyday national dishes as pilau and dolma, and always use yogurt sauce.

This is the only income in his family, and it is not enough to cover the basic needs of his beloved children. Yadigar applied for 1000 AZN to purchase 8 sheep and cattle.
