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).

Alijon's story

Alijon is a very hard working and purposeful man. He is 33 years old, married, and raising four children. In order to provide his family with all necessary means, he has been providing a taxi service for more than 12 years. His children have over the years needed more goods, extra tutoring, computers and internet, and this requires a lot of money.

Alijon needs to develop his business and increase his income. In order to do this, he should repair his car and purchase a new car to attract customers. He requests a loan in the amount of 5,000 somoni. He awaits your kindness.
