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 $1,500 helped to pay for a computer, printer and chairs for providing individual lessons.

Artsvik's story

Artsvik is from Kapan town where she lives with her husband and daughter. She is a teacher with many years of teaching experience. Together with her work at a local school, Artsvik also provides individual lessons for pupils.
Due to her hard work, Artsvik already has 15 pupils and provides Russian language classes for them.
Because of the family's living conditions, Artsvik isn't able to purchase chairs and other products that she needs for her work. So, with this loan Artsvik wants to purchase a computer, printer and chairs for providing individual lessons, which will greatly assist her classes and will make them more effective.
Artsvik has now been approved for a loan within the framework of a new joint initiative between Kiva and SEF international. The program provides business start-up loans with soft conditions to informal businesses that do not have access to credit products.
The loan is very important for Artsvik and she hopes for lenders' trust and support.
