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 $600 helped purchase dried apricots to process and sell.


Nodira's story

U. Nodira is a dynamic and ambitious 25-year-old lady. She is married and has 3 children. For 2 years she has had a small business processing dried apricots. Thanks to the quality of her products, she has earned a solid reputation among her customers and the demand for her goods has grown. This income allows Nodira to contribute significantly to the household.


Nodira requests a loan of 2000 Somoni ($600). She plans to purchase dried apricots and then process and resell them. Nodira hopes that she will continue providing her children with education so they will be able to receive an adequate education. She expresses her gratitude to everyone for supporting her.
