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).

Las Tres Marias Group's story

Greetings from Peru! Giovanna is a member of the community bank "The Three Marias". This group is comprised of 5 members who run various types of business.
Giovanna sells salchipapas (a sausage and potato dish) and fried chicken. She sells these at night and has been doing this for 10 years. She runs this business from her home and has loyal customers. Her dream is to have her own business premises so that she could serve more customers.
Giovanna has requested a loan to buy supplies such as chicken, potatoes, and eggs to prepare salchipapas and fried chicken.
Giovanna is separated and has 2 children. Thanks to her hard work and dedication, Giovanna has achieved a better income that enables her to pay for her children to attend university. Giovanna is very happy with this loan and is grateful to Edaprospo and to Kiva.

In this group: Giovanna Maribel , Maria Magdalena , Angelica , Rosa Maria , Silvia
