A loan of $2,100 helped to have a wedding party for his two sons.


Akpar's story

Akpar is a man with a generous soul. All his life he has been working hard and earning money to provide for his family. He got very lucky with his wife - she is a kind and hard working woman who works as a seamstress. Akpar has four adult children. His two oldest daughters are married and have children themselves. His two sons also want to get married, and asked their father to pay for the celebration, but Akpar has no savings for wedding expenses. He works as a taxi driver and has been successful in it for 31 years - he is a talkative and polite man and his clients are always pleased. But Akpar uses all the income from the taxi business to buy groceries and other household necessities for his family. Akpar is requesting a loan of 10,000 somoni from Kiva to pay for his sons' weddings. He hopes for your generosity.
