Our Eighth Kiva Diva: Tahire in Azerbaijan (November 2014)

Our Eighth Kiva Diva - Tahire in Azerbaijan - November 2014

Kiva is a crowd-funding site supporting entrepreneurs in developing countries. Through the Estrogen Army project we will be investing in women who would otherwise have a difficult time accessing traditional loans to fund their own adventures.

Today we’re celebrating our eighth “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship!

We’re helping 49 year old widow, Tahire, buy new lab equipment for disease research with our November “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship.

This month we’re celebrating our eighth “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship by helping a 49-year-old widow whose work is devoted to helping others.

Tahire has been raising her 2 children alone since her husband was killed in the Karabakh War. Her family members are IDP (internally displaced persons) from the occupied territory of Azerbaijan. They have been in Agdam city over 22 years and now they are living in the Absheron region. Her older daughter is married and her younger daughter graduated school and is preparing for exams to enter university.

We’re helping Tahire buy new lab equipment so she can expand her research of diseases with our November “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship.

She still needs a little more help!
