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).

Shodmon's story

Shodmon, age 64, is a resident of the J. Rumy district. He lives with his wife and he is the father of five children. His children, who now live on their own, work in the service industry or are involved in commerce.

Shodmon has turned to our organization in order to receive a loan to start a business and resume his activity. From a young age, he has been involved in farming and agriculture, but for health reasons he hasn't been able to work in agriculture for a year.

Shodmon is a hard-working man and he would like to get involved in animal-husbandry. He intends to buy cattle and raise his livestock at home. He wants to buy a cow to get fresh milk and would also like to purchase young bulls and calves for resale in a few months.
