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 $2,675 helped to buy bulls for increasing livestock headcount.


Djumakan's story

Djumakan is 60 years old, married and raising four children together with her husband. Djumakan has a secondary education. To provide the primary source of income for her family, she is involved in animal husbandry, having started 30 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 5,000 som (KGS). Thanks to her hard work, today her business contains one dairy cow and two calves. The monthly income amounts to 12,000 som (KGS). In order to further develop her business, Djumakan requested a loan in the amount of 130,000 som (KGS) from the microfinance bank "Bai-Tushum and Partners" to buy bulls for increasing livestock headcount. Djumakan plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and plans to save money to hold a wedding for her youngest son.
