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).

Enma Rita's story

Enma is a member of the Communal Bank "Tulipanes" (Tulips). She is 48 years old and a single mother with two daughters. Enma strives to move forward with her family. She buys and sells grains. Her products are sold at the fairs and also at the market. She feels very good about FINCA because she has learned how to save, as well as how to be supportive and understanding. What she enjoys most about the training classes offered by her Communal Bank is learning about how to do a better job of teaching her daughters and also how to develop as a person and as an entrepreneur.

The loan she is requesting will be used to buy grains that she can sell at the fairs and at the market.
