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 $2,000 helped to pay for three oxen, forage for feeding them, seeds and fertilizer.

Manvel's story

Manvel lives in Mrgashat village with his wife and son. The family has been engaged in agriculture for many years. Currently, they keep a cow and cultivate cucumbers. Manvel's farm was damaged from a hail storm which took place in June 2013. The most affected farmers were those who were cultivating orchards and grapes, and Manvel was one of them. His grape orchard was partially destroyed, and he wasn't able to recover it.

Now, Manvel is asking for this loan in order to enlarge his farm and rebuild his farm. With the loan's help, he will purchase three oxen, forage for feeding them, seeds and fertilizer. This loan is very important for Manvel to be able to recover from the damages and start a new life. He waits for your support.
