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).

Concepcion Group's story

The Concepción group is comprised of 3 hardworking, enterprising women. Their coordinator is Alma Nubia M. C., who has 26 years of experience buying and selling shoes. Currently she has a stand in the Masaya market and her goal is to have a big shoe store with all styles at a good price.

In this group Gladis V. R. also sells shoes, however she works in her house, offering credit to the people of the community, persons known to her and vouched for by others. The third member, Rosa Argentina S. O., works in a different, but no less lucrative field than her partners. She sells fried foods from her house, mostly at night and on the weekend. All three women will use the loan to buy merchandise and/or primary ingredients to continue growing their working capital.

In this group: Alma Nubia, Gladis, Rosa Argentina
