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 $1,500 helped to pay for fertilizer and forage for feeding the livestock.


Varduhi's story

Varduhi has been involved in agriculture for 10 years. She keeps livestock (2 cows, 4 bulls), cultivates tomatoes, and grows peach and apricot trees. She works hard to gather a good harvest and sell it locally. Varduhi milks cows, uses the milk in cheese production, and sells the cheese. Her agricultural business helps her to sustain her family: herself, her husband, and three children. The farming business is her family's only source of income, so Varduhi does her best to earn a high income to cover the family's costs.

She has applied to SEF International for a loan to purchase fertilizer, which is very important for successful land cultivation, and to buy forage for feeding the livestock. The loan is very important for Varduhi and her family to enlarge their farming business and improve their living conditions.
