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).

Zultsetseg's story

Mrs. Zultsetseg is 26 years old. She lives with her husband and three children in a ger (traditional housing) in the Arhangai province of Mongolia.

Her husband, Galbadrah, 30, works part-time in a private company as an assistant worker. Her two sons, Byambadorj and Batdorj, ages 4 and 3, go to kindergarten, and her daughter, Battsetseg, 9 months old, stays home with Zultsetseg’s parents, who take care of the baby during the day.

Zultsetseg has been working as a saleswoman in clothes, optical and grocery stores for years, and now she is planning to start her own business of clothes retail in the local market. Since their family now has two toddlers and one newborn, their family expenses have increased. She is asking for 1,000,000 MNT to import clothes for her newly starting clothes retail business in the local market.

Zultsetseg is a communicative, friendly, and hardworking person.
