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).

Elshad's story

Elshad is a 30-year-old married man with three children. His main business is selling milk, yogurt, cheese and curd. With the income he earns, he has started to buy barley seed and sows the land that he owns. He is selling the harvest to generate additional income. The diseases of animals and high drug costs hinder his business. His plan for the future is to increase the number of his animals. With this loan, Elshad intends to buy a cow that will be the first step to his goal and will increase his milk production.
