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).

Farhad's story

Farhad is a 27-year-old master craftsman. He is married and has a child aged three. Farhad is an IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) from Lachin city and now he is living in Baku region with his lovely wife and a child. His wife doesn't work in the business, therefore all the needs of the family are provided by Farhad and he wants to increase his business.

It’s noted that he is a master craftsman and that he builds stone walls. He has been in this business for 2 years. Today Farhad needs a loan of an amount of 1,000 AZN (Azerbaijan New Manat) to buy new materials to support his new business. He is thankful to the Kiva organization and all lenders for their help. In the future Farhad wants to hire an assistant for his business.
