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 $2,475 helped to purchase building and insulation materials.


Shiiter's story

Mrs. Shiiter, 53 years old, lives with her son in Darkhan, the second largest city of Mongolia. She has been working as a saleswoman at a grocery store for ten years. Her son is a truck driver and works at a mining company.

She is requesting a loan of 4,000,000 MNT to purchase building and insulation materials, such as planks, cement, fiberglass and foam. Using those materials, she and her son will repair and insulate their old house. The renovated house will enable the family to burn less coal for heating, thus releasing fewer pollutants into the atmosphere.

The borrower is a very hardworking individual who strives for a better future.
