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 $1,800 helped to purchase nuts.


Togtokhsuren's story

Mr. Togtokhsuren, 39 years old, lives with his wife and 3 children in Kherlen, the largest city of eastern province of Mongolia. He has been running taxi business for 6 consequent years and his wife is an ice cream vendor. His elder two children go to secondary school, and little one oversees their home. In winter, the ice cream business is quite good, so his family decided to buy a large amount of ice cream from Russia. On the other hand, in summer the nuts business prospers in this region, so Mr. Togtokhsuren decided to buy large amount of nuts in advance to sell for next summer. Also, he is very thankful for the lenders that financed his previous loan as it helped him greatly. This time, he is requesting a 2,500,000 MNT loan. By doing so, it will help him to finance their children’s education and other expenses. Mr. Togtokhsuren is a very hard working individual and believes in his future.
