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).

Primavera Group's story

The “Primavera” (Springtime) Communal Bank is comprised of 13 enthusiastic and enterprising members. They work at different activities like production, commerce, and service. They have been working with EDAPROSPO- Prosperidad for five years.

Augosto is the president. He is 53 years old, married, and has two children. He has been selling fish at the fishing terminal for 20 years. He started this business because he used to be a helper to a person who sold fish, and Agosto decided to become independent. Through his work efforts he has managed to build his house. The income from his business covers the food expenses and pays for services. He tells us that his big goal is to expand his business more.

The loan he is requesting is to buy merchandise.

All of the members are grateful for the support, and they pledge to make their payments on time.

In this group: Augusto Felipe, Bacilia, Ines, Sebastiana, Bertha, Rosa Felicia, Adelaida T, Martha Cristina, Lizandro Santiago, Martha Patricia, Isabel, Otilia Teodora, Carman Luz
