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 $1,425 helped to purchase building materials (windows, flooring, fiberglass) to repair and renovate his family's house.


Batsuuri's story

Mr. Batsuuri is a 40-year-old man living with his family in Ulaanbaatar, the capital city of Mongolia. The family resides in their own house on a plot of land. His son studies at university and will graduate this summer.



Since 2010, he has been providing plumbing services to individuals and entities on temporary employment contracts.



His family's house has deteriorated over the years and needs repairs, including a new floor, windows, and wall insulation. As a result, he is requesting a loan in the amount of 2,000,000 MNT to purchase vacuum insulated windows, hardwood floors, and fiberglass. Using those materials, he can repair and insulate his house. He believes that the renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal and to emit less smoke, which would contribute to the efforts against air pollution.
