Because of the help of generous people like you, FTW was able to help fund several people through Kiva this month. We are happy to share their stories with you here.
Please watch this video to see why Fix the World gives to Kiva every month:
Hikmatyor (above) is a young farmer from Hamadoni. At 23 years old his is actively engaged in agriculture. He is already married and he lives with his wife with his parents.

Over the years of being a farmer, he had started to get interested in how he could help and be part of the community more. Starting a small herbal clinic has been a dream of his and hopes one day he can achieve this.The loan will be used to start a Moringa farm. Moringa is a superfood with growing demand globally. The seeds produce oil with medicinal benefits and the leaves are packed with nutrition. The loan will be used to purchase seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides, get adequate water, obtain farm management training, and hire a tractor to clear the land for planting the farm. This loan is a chance for something greater; a chance to pull him out of a life of threatening poverty. View his fund here: https://www.kiva.org/lend/1048925
