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).

A loan of $2,850 helped a member to buy beverages to sell.

Fortalez Group's story

This committee is called “Fortaleza” (Strength) and is in its 2nd cycle with 18 members each with her own activity. They are very united, responsible and mutually supportive. They see a great opportunity to grow in Fundación Paraguaya’s program.

Josefa is one of the members of the group and she tells us that she sell beverages in general. She started out with a small business which thanks to her work and hard effort has been able to grow into a well-stocked business.

She’s asking for the loan to buy beverages like soft-drinks, wine, beer and other types to stock up and be able to continue working.
