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).

Corazon De Jesus Group's story

The Communal Bank "Corazon D. Jesus" is composed of 11 highly committed associates who are punctual and responsible. They live in the same neighborhood, which is why they have shared the same community. They are very hardworking and have found EDAPROSPO-PROSPERIDAD an opportunity to grow and expand.

One example is María, who at 48 is a single woman with 3 children. She struggled to give her children an education and good values, and now she hopes that her businesses bear the fruit of her labor.

María provides catering services for events such as birthdays, christenings, weddings, etc. She also receives a lot of support from her children, since most of them are responsible for managing her typing, copying, and printing business.

María welcomed the growth of her businesses but she still hopes to implement more improvements. Thanks to the previous loan she was able to purchase a computer for her typing and printing service.

She dreams of becoming well-known as a great caterer and becoming the best in the typing and printing business.

In this group: Maria Irma, Jesus, Rosa Juana, Albertina Victoria, Vilma Gladys, Gladys Maribel, Martha Antonia, Judith Marlene, Jeniffer, Maria Antonia, Eugenia
