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).

Las Yungueñitas Group's story

The Communal Association “LAS YUNGUEÑITAS” will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer working with the Juan Pablo Center. It is composed of six members and it is directed by a direction board led by Yessica. The members of the Communal Association engage in different activities such as services, retail, new businesses and food production.

Yessica says it is the first time she has entered in Pro Mujer, and that she has been invited by the loan officers. She will start a liquor store with this loan.

The loan she is requesting will be used to buy her products (spirits) in El Alto after they have been prepared; she will then sell them in her shop. As she is single, this type of activity allows her to earn an income to support her family as much as she can.

In this group: Yessica Maira, Sonia , Mariela Marlene, Brigida Mariana, Lucia , Virginia
