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 $1,950 helped to buy two more cows in order to expand his cattle breeding.


Hayko's story

Hayko is 52 years old and lives in Gavar with his wife and school-aged son. It is already seven years since he and his wife, who is unemployed, began farming. Their farm is very scant, since they have only two cows, three sheep, one piglet and ten chickens. They want to expand their farm and in this way to improve their poor living conditions. Hayko needs a loan of 800,000 Armenian drams to buy two more cows. He hopes to receive a a good income for his family as a result of this loan. On this occasion he is really relying on the kindness of Kiva lenders and hopes to cooperate with them again.
