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 $3,000 helped to buy 13 colonies of bees, a cow, and grass.


Varazdat's story

Varazdat is a proactive, 26-year-old man who works at a local credit organization. Unfortunately, his salary is insufficient to make ends meet for a family of four (including his father, mother, and grandmother), but the family also has a farming business that helps them earn some stable income. Both Varazdat and his father are involved in agriculture and keep 10 colonies of bees and 2 cows. The loan requested will help Varazdat purchase 13 more colonies of bees, another cow, and grass. As there are always plenty of buyers for high-quality honey, Varazdat is hopeful that this loan will give him an opportunity to earn more income and ensure a better future for his family.
