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).

Asociación Ybycuí Group's story

There a total of eleven women dedicated exclusively to creating artisanal crafts and they all generate weekly income. Therefore, the loan is extremely important for the creation of their bedspreads, tablecloths, and hammocks. They intend to improve the quality of their craftsmanship and they are motivated by their desire to improve their income. One of the members of the group, Jacinta, makes various crafts on an ongoing basis and helps support her family financially with this income. She is requesting the loan to purchase supplies such as paints, paintbrushes, thread, lace, etc.
