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).

Dashgin's story

Dashgin is 21 years old and single. He is an internally displaced person (someone forced to flee his or her home, but who remains within the country's borders) from the town of Fuzuli. He now lives in the Fuzuli region of Azerbaijan with his brother.

As a new business, Dashgin breeds cows. He needs 2,000 AZN (Azerbaijani New Manat) to buy calves to improve his new business. Dashgin loves his work.
