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).

Oyunjargal's story

Mrs. Oyunjargal is a 30-year-old single woman who lives with her grandmother in a ger (a traditional Mongolian nomadic felt housing tent, similar to a yurt) in the Uvurhangai province of Mongolia. Her grandmother is a 72-year-old lady who requires constant care. She has been running a business of clothes retailing since 2000 with her sister, and from 2005 she has been running a clothes retailing business alone for her living at a rental counter at a local market.

She has temporarily stopped her business for the last few months because of her grandmother's health condition. She spent her cash for her grandmother's hospital expenses and needed additional cash of 1,000,000 MNT to import clothes from Erlian, China to run her clothes retailing business again from her rental counter at a local market. She is a hardworking, kind and responsible woman.
