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.

Kunduzkhan's story

Kunduzkhan is 55 years old, married, and together with her husband Seyitbek raised one daughter. Her husband is a construction work and is involved in underworking in private construction. As his fellow villagers say, Seyitbek has "golden hands".

Kunduzkhan has a secondary education and is a homemaker. As a main source of income for her family, Kunduzkhan raises livestock, having begun 20 years ago with a livestock purchase of 10,000 som KGS. Thanks to her hard work, Kunduzkhan today has on her farm: seven sheep. Monthly income amounts to 10,000 som (KGS).

With the aim of further developing her farm, Kunduzkhan applied to the microfinance bank Bai-Tushum and Partners for a loan - to purchase a cow to increase her livestock count.

Kunduzkhan plans to invest income from the loan in further propagation of the quantity of domestic animals.
