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).

Munara's story

Munara is 60 years old, married and raising 3 children together with her husband. Munara has a secondary education. She and her husband are involved in animal husbandry and farming, having started 20 years ago with a purchase of livestock with 20,000 som (KGS). Thanks to Munara's hard work, today her business contains 5 dairy cows, 15 sheep and 2 horses. The monthly income amounts to 15,000 som (KGS). She also works on 7.58 hectares of land, where she primarily grows barley. The obtained harvest is sold to wholesale distributors. In order to further develop her business, Munara requested a loan from the bank "Bai-Tushum" to buy cows to increase livestock headcount. Munara plans to invest the earnings from the loan into further increasing domestic livestock quantities and saving money for holding a wedding celebration for her son.
