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).

Erdenebold's story

Mr. Erdenebold, 37 years old, lives with his wife and daughter in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. He and his wife are building decorators. Currently, they are working with a construction business entity on a contract of two years. Also, they have livestock in the countryside and add to their assets by purchasing livestock each year. His daughter goes to elementary school. The house they live in needs some outer and interior repair. So he is requesting a loan of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase bricks, roofing material, cement and dry boards. As a result, the family can live in a comfortable and warm place. More importantly in wintertime, the family will burn less coal, thus contributing to the efforts against air pollution. The borrower is a very hardworking and trustworthy individual who deeply cares for his wife and daughter.
