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 $725 helped to repair his barn for chickens.

Vaghtang's story

Vaghtang is 44 years old and lives with his wife and son in Kapan. Although Vaghtang has a higher education, graduating from Yerevan State Polytechnic Institute, he has never worked. His wife works as a teacher at the school. In the village where Vaghtang and his family live he has a private piece of land. They also keep a hundred chickens. Vaghtang cultivates vegetables and fruits and sells the gathered harvest at the Kapan wholesale market. Besides agriculture and farming, Vaghatang is engaged in carpentry works, making wooden parquetry, boxes, etc.

Vaghtang plans to repair the barn for his chickens and needs a loan of 300,000 Armenian drams. It is the first, but hopefully not the last, time that he wishes to have a deal with Kiva lenders.
