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).

Holmurod's story

Holmurod is 46 years old. He lives and works in a village in the Yavan region of Tajikistan. Holmurod, along with most of people living in Yavan, raises livestock and grows crops for a living, and has been at it for quite some time. He lives off the land, feeding himself and his family through the crops he grows and the animals he raises. Holmurod has successfully been engaged in the farming and animal husbandry for 10 years. Autumn in Tajikistan goes by almost unnoticed; the summer weather does not end with summer, and the winter cold sets in not long thereafter. At the moment, Holmurod is seeking a loan to stock up on mineral fertilizers to prepare the soil for sowing.
