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).

Mujeres De Chinimabe Group's story

Gloria Esperanza M. P. is married and has a one and a half year old son. She contributes to her family’s financial support and strives to prepare a better future for her son.

She sells daily use items, a job she’s had for over 10 years.

Gloria realized that she needed to improve her stock so that sales would increase thereby producing higher profits. So she got together with a few neighbors and for the last 15 years they have supported each other and formed into a group. She tries to help out not just her family but the other people in her village because she realizes that this is the only way they can live in a better society.

In this group: Santos , Maria Elvira , Marta Elena , Adelaida , Estela , Reginalda , Dominga Cristina , Dora Floridalma , Gloria Esperanza , Elena Vicenta
