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).

Saltanat's story

Saltanat is 40 years old. Together with her husband, she is raising three children. In 2006, the couple started their own business of selling office and home supplies. They started this business with initial start-up capital in the amount of 10,000 som (KGS). Having been able to develop her business and attract loyal customers, Saltanat has an average monthly income of 10,000 som (KGS). Thanks to the hard work put into her business, Saltanat has increased her sales turnover. For the purpose of further increasing and expanding her business, Saltanat turned to Microfinance Bank "Bai Tushum." She is requesting a loan to buy wholesale office and home supplies to sell in the future at a mark-up . Saltanat plans to invest the earnings from the loan to buy a shop for selling merchandise.
