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).

Rubik's story

Rubik is 60 years old and he lives in Gavar city, which is in the Gegharkunik region. Rubik has graduated Gavar State University, but he has never worked anywhere but his farm. Rubik is marred and he has four children; three daughters and a son. All his daughters are married and they live separately from their parents. Rubik’s son is not married yet; he works at the construction company.

Rubik and his wife are engaged in farming and they breed tree cows, a heifer, two bulls and two calves. Their farm products they sell from their house to resellers. Rubik greatly wants to enlarge his farm cattle, not being afraid of work and much expenditure connected with it. Rubik asks a loan of 1,000,000 Armenian drams in order to buy several cows and a lot of animal fodder.
