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).

La Piramide Group's story

These members belong to the communal bank La Pirámide, which is located in the district of Cusco, which belongs to the province of Cusco and the department of Cusco.

Member Fausta is 48 years old, single, and has two children. She works in her business, which is a grocery store, selling essential goods such as rice, sugar, milk, oil, and biscuits. She works from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. This business allows her to provide for her children. Her dream is to expand and improve her grocery store business. She is requesting the loan in order to purchase rice, sugar, milk, oil, and biscuits.

Fausta is thankful to everyone who is a part of this dream through this resource, and she is committed to paying all her installments on time.
