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).

Santa Lucía Group's story

The formation of this current group began with Donatilda A., member of the “Santa Lucía” group in the kilometer 10 Acaray zone. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form the group in this zone.

The group is in its thirteenth loan cycle and all of them are very enthusiastic to continue working with the group.

Catalina G., who works in obstetrics, is one of the members of the group. She entered this profession with many courses that she completed when she was young and she currently maintains her family with this job.

She is requesting the loan to make some improvements to her office like paintings, changing the flooring and others. She is grateful for the help.

In this group: Catalina, Felisa, Gladys, Lilian, Bernarda, Graciela, Cármen, Ilda, Tranquilina, Ninfa, Donatila, Alejandra, Magdalena, Victoria, Leónidas, Ruth*, Lucia Mabel*, Marisa*
