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).

Rincon Portada Group's story

The members of the Rincón Portada association sell their products in the well known 16 de julio fair, which is located in the zone of the same name (city of El Alto). They belong to the Alto Lima community center. The group formed approximately five years ago with 11 members.

They sell vegetables, cheese, socks, chicken, and hand woven clothes. They also make handicrafts, popcorn, and mattresses.

The Rincón Portada association now needs to buy merchandise and raw materials to increase their production and sales. They are sure that they will obtain better earnings.

In this group: Mauricia, Francisca, Rosa*, Martha Maria, Luis Fernando, Damiana, Silvia Eugenia, Maritza, Gabriela, Ysidora, Gaby
