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 $2,700 helped to buy cattle for fattening and resale.

Askar's story

Askar lives in the countryside of the J. Rasulov region of Tajikistan. He's 36 years old, married and has two kids that go to school. Askar makes a living by fattening large cattle such as bulls and calves that he then sells on the local market for profit. He also owns a car and works additionally as a taxi driver. His wife is in the retail business.

Because they're the parents of growing children, Askar and his wife have to work day and night in order to provide for them. Askar's asking for a loan in order to buy some more cattle. He thanks you in advance for your help and support.
