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).

Sr De Coyllority Picchu Group's story

The members belong to the Sr De Coyllority Picchu communal bank. This bank is located in the Cusco district, Cusco province, Cusco department.

Virginia is a member. She is 62 years old, married, and has three children. She works in the business of selling beauty products like lipsticks, creams, and perfumes. She sells in an itinerant manner from 8:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Through her business she gets her children ahead. Her dream is to have a place where she is able to sell her beauty products. She is requesting the loan to buy lipsticks, creams, and perfumes.

The other members’ businesses are transportation, selling fish, a store selling groceries, and selling food.

The member is grateful to those who form part of this dream through this means. She pledges to makes her payments during the established time frame.
