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 $2,300 helped to repair the kitchen of his "chayxana” (tea house).


Magsud's story

Maqsud, 34 years old, has been married for 11 years and has a son, aged 9, who attends second class. Maqsud’s wife is a seller in the local market. His family members are IDPs (Internally Displaced Persons) from Khojali, who now live in the Baku region.

Maqsud has a “chayxana” (tea house), where he serves “samovar tea” to customers. Maqsud needs a loan of 1,800 AZN (Azerbaijan New Manat) to repair the chayxana's kitchen. Maqsud is thankful to the Kiva organization for help. In the future, he wants to increase the area of his chayxana and his monthly income.
