To celebrate September 15th, Credit Watch Day, how about this Person with Livestock [Team] loan?


http://www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=128728
 
Sona Bakhshalıyeva is the married mother of an enthusiastic family. Passing through many difficulties after she was internally displaced during the Armenian-Azerbaijan war, when she lost everything she had, she was brave to start from zero and build her own business again. She works for the well-being and happiness of her two sons.

Sona is a very hardworking woman who rises early in the morning to feed her cattle. She wants to improve the setup of her business to increase her earnings. In order to satisfy her goal for a higher quality of life, Sona needs to buy more cattle to raise for sale. She is seeking a loan of 2,000 USD for this. Letís support this hardworking and talented woman so that she can obtain her goals!

 
Azerbaijan, 17 mo loan, no currency risk, $1,000 FUNDED! (less than 50%) left to fund.

Thanks to everyone who funded Sona Bakhshalıyeva!

Once again, A is for Azerbaijan, as well as all efforts on the behalf of Person(s) with Livestock.  (Other countries and/or livestock are coming next, I promise. I have a little list...)  But this man is so dedicated, he's with his cattle day and night! 


http://www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=128732
Sarmast Quliyev has an animal husbandry business. He has secondary education but, because he does not have a specialized education, animal husbandry is the only source of income for his family. He buys calves at the market for a low price, feeds them and then resells in the same market for more profit. He has a small barn where he breeds the calves.

Sarmast is 53 years old, married and has four children. He provides the markets with meat and his family with food. Sarmast wants to buy young cattle and needs a loan of $2000 US. He is very grateful to all those who can support him.



This was *the* most popular cattle loan on Kiva during the entire 18th of Sept.!  But as you can see, he still has a way to go before he and his cows can sleep... and his loan expires on Sept. 30th.

Azerbaijan, 17 mo loan, no currency risk, $1,575 FUNDED! with 3 days to spare.

Thanks to everyone who funded Khurshed Nosirov, especially the #1 Team on the loan -- the small but powerful Person with Livestock Team

To celebrate the beginning of Fall [Northern Hemisphere]/Spring [Southern Hemisphere], how about this Man with Goats? 


http://www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=132140

Abdujabor Salimov, 34, lives in Rumi district. He is married with three children. For over 7 years, Abdujabor has raised animals for a living, fattening and selling livestock at the market. As a satisfied past microfinance client, Abdujabor has applied for another loan to purchase additional livestock.

Only 1 day left as of Sept. 29th!  Get him his goats while the getting is good! 

T is for Tajikistan, 14 mo loan, no currency risk, FUNDED!

Thanks to everyone who supported Sarmast Quliyev

Special thanks go to the Kiva Muslims, Netherlands, Late Loaning Lenders and Atheists, Agnostics teams who all stepped in with just a few days left for this Man with Cow.  In spite of all these bigger teams, our team still had the #5 spot on the Top Lending Teams for this loan!  Way to go, folks! 

To celebrate us adding our 7th member -- no, wait, 7th, 8th, *and* 9th members! -- here's something a little different... a Man with Chickens loan:


http://www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=134908

Khayal has been in poultry business for 4 years. He lives in Baku city. This man was born in 1988. Khayal is single. Now he needs a loan of 2000 AZN to buy poultry and feed for improving his poultry business.


This man is surrounded by fluffy white chickens, and those of you who know chickens know how dangerous that is!  More to the point, he is surrounded by red and white chicken feeders, which clearly need to be filled.  He has 5 days left.  Can you help save him from the menace of hungry poultry?   

A is for Azerbaijan one last time in September.  This is a 20 month loan, currency risk possible and big but irregular payments.  However, there's only $750 FUNDED!

Thanks to everyone who supported Khayal Zeynalov! PwL got knocked off the Top 5 Lenders for the loan by teams who averaged about 2 zillion members apiece, so we don't feel too upset (actually, we're not upset at all -- we feel great that he got funded).

To celebrate the beginning of October -- be it harvest season and pumpkins or sweet spring and fancy flowers wherever you are -- how about this Woman with Ducks?


http://www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=141098

Anabelle Aclo is from the village of Punta. She is 46 years old. Anabelle is married and has 1 school-aged child. To make a living, Anabelle owns and operates a duck-raising business. The main source of income for the business comes primarily from raising ducks for sale. Anabelle has been engaged in her business for over 6 years and earns approximately 8000 PHP a month for this activities.

In 2006, Anabelle joined PMPC to gain access to financial services to help improve her living situation and ability to engage in business activities. Anabelle has successfully repaid a previous loan from PMPC. Anabelle is requesting a new loan of 25,000 PHP which will be used to purchase livestock feed and other supplies. This will be the 10th loan taken out by Anabelle from PMPC. She plans to use the additional revenue generated from the business to improve/expand her business.


They say a picture can be worth a thousand words.  In this case, I'll let this picture say it all -- though since ducks don't talk, perhaps it's more like a thousand quacks.   

Phillippines, 11 mo, currency risk.  68% left means only $400RAISED IN 1 DAY!

Thanks to everyone who supported Anabelle Aclo!  Once again, the Person with Livestock Team took the lead, but the loan funded so quickly not everyone got a chance to get involved!   

To celebrate Indian Summer [Northern Hemisphere] and the first rays of Spring [Southern Hemisphere], how about a traditional Man with Cows loan?  At least we *think* they're cows...


http://www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=136039

Hasan Isoev lives in the Abdurahmon Jomi district. He is 42 years old, married and has 4 children. Hasan has been working as an accountant at a company for over 18 years. Together with his family, he has also been involved in animal husbandry for over 4 years. He raises and sells livestock. Hasan is requesting a loan for the purchase of livestock.

The Activity is given as "Animal Sales" and the loan only talks about "livestock". So are these small cows or big goats? You decide!

Also, the sheer combination of Accountant + Livestock tickles us to no end. Write your own joke here! Wink

Tajikistan, 14 mo, no currency risk, and a full $2000$1950 to go.

Credits will start are a-coming in, so please keep in mind this traditional Man with Cows loan.


http://www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=136039

Hasan Isoev lives in the Abdurahmon Jomi district. He is 42 years old, married and has 4 children. Hasan has been working as an accountant at a company for over 18 years. Together with his family, he has also been involved in animal husbandry for over 4 years. He raises and sells livestock. Hasan is requesting a loan for the purchase of livestock.

Hasan, a combination of livestock farmer and accountant with fabulous fashion sense, had the misfortune to be part of a massive flood of loans at the beginning of the month -- a very similar loan posted just 2 days later and funded the same day. So don't get left out -- basket early and checkout often! 

Tajikistan, 14 mo, no currency risk, and FUNDED as of Oct. 26th. His expiration date was Oct. 30/31, but teams like the Kiva Friends - Agriculture Loans and the Late Loaning Lenders helped us get him funded 4 days early! Thank you ALL for helping cover over 1/3rd of his loan in one day.
