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).

Husniya's story

Husniya was born in the city of Kanibadam in the Sogdian Oblast. She has three children and she is a very hard-working person. Husniya raises livestock and sells their dairy products, which she herself makes by hand, at the market. This is the way she earns a living for her family and she is the main breadwinner at home. With the goal of increasing her income, Husniya plans to increase her head of cattle and thus expand her range of dairy products. Following the advice of a friend, Husniya decided to apply for a loan and turned to Arvand. She hopes that with the help of Arvand, she can expand her business and improve her living conditions. She extends her thanks in advance.
