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).

Baygalmaa's story

Mrs. Baygalmaa is a 46-year-old borrower from the Uvs province of Mongolia. She lives with her 3 children in a ger, a traditional nomadic yurt, on her own plot of land. Her oldest child has gotten married and lives apart now. During the summer she moves into her small summer house.

She had started importing fruit and other small products from China a few years ago. Her oldest son has got a new job in the local police station and her youngest son is studying in the high school. She has obtained lots of experience in running an organic vegetable and fruit retail business.

Now she is requesting 7,000,000 MNT to buy more organic vegetable and fruit products to sell at her store.
