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 Buena Nueva 4 Group's story

Gloria is one of the members of the Grupo La Buena Nueva (The Good New) 4, located in the city of Samana. This group is composed of five micro-entrepreneurs who sell clothes, shoes, cosmetics, and fruits, and who also provide services including a beauty salon, etc.

Gloria is a businesswoman who lives with her husband and their three children. She tells us that her greatest challenge is to help her children to grow and become professional. She is very excited to receive her 13th loan with Kiva partner Esperanza Internacional, after having satisfactorily paid off her earlier loans, and with each one contributing to growing her business. She has had her business for about seven years. She started it with the aim of making money and being useful and that is when she took her first Esperanza loan. She is planning to use this loan to purchase pounds of chicken to sell in her butcher shop. She plans to use her earnings to help her husband with extra income and provide for any needs, specially for school. Her dream is to have a successful business and a comfortable house.

In this group: Gloria, Yomeibi, Martina, Ereyda, Ydalia
