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 $4,875 helped to buy a more environmentally friendly car.


Bayanmunkh's story

Bayanmunkh, 39 years old, lives with his wife in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia.

He transports people between Ulaanbaatar and Darkhan, the second largest city in Mongolia. His wife runs her own private business, but their main income comes from his automobile, which has a diesel engine.

As a person who worries about the environment, Bayanmunkh wants to change his automobile with another one that has a gas engine, since gas engine-powered automobiles emit less smoke and contribute less air pollution.

So he is requesting a 6,800,000 MNT loan to buy an environmentally friendlier car. The result is beneficial to both sides: This family will generate more income for their children and the air will be polluted less.
