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).

Cristo Rey Group's story

The fifteen women you see here have formed a support group and come together once a week to discuss their various businesses. They have taken the name of “Cristo Rey,” and work hard in their various businesses to support their families. Some of them bring their children to meetings while others come alone. They all work together, supporting one another in pursuit of increased business profits.

Some women sell clothes, others make clothes. They sell food and household goods and provide various services. They are asking for a loan to keep their businesses growing and to increase their profits .

In this group: Petrona, Josefa, Claudelina*, María, María, Guillermina, Fidelina*, Angelina, Faustina, Maria, Blanca, Benigna, Garaparina, Graciela, Rosmari*
