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 $3,000 helped to purchase three steers, two pigs, and some forage for the livestock.


Arkadi's story

Arkadi is from the Dalarik village in the Armavir region. He lives with his parents, his wife, his five-year-old daughter, and his three-year-old son. Arkadi works in a taxi service as a taxi driver, and his father works in the private sector. They are the main breadwinners of the family. Their salaries alone, however, are not enough to fully meet the needs of the family.

Arkadi is engaged in breeding a livestock of cows and pigs and in cultivation of alfalfa, apricots, and grapes. Farming is a very important source of income for the family. Arkadi sells the agricultural products in the local market. To be able to run the agribusiness in a sustainable way, he currently needs a loan of $3,000 to purchase three steers, two pigs, and some forage for the livestock.

Expanding the livestock with the help of the loan will help Arkadi maintain and develop his agribusiness. Arkadi and his big family will be grateful to all the lenders for helping them collect the needed loan to sustain their agribusiness.
