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).

Mujeres Populares Group's story

The “Mujeres Populares” (Popular Women) committee has 12 members, all women, who for the most part sell clothes, beverages, food, candy, etc. The committee members are very united; they help each other out and at the same time help their families.

One of the members is Karen who sells women’s clothing. She sells t-shirts, shirts, pants, dresses, etc. and is able to contribute to her family’s basic staple needs this way. She’s asking for a loan to buy new, better quality, goods to offer her customers so that her income and the number of her customers will increase.

In this group: Karen, Nilda, Nilda, Valeriana, Vidalina, Rogelia, Alicia, Alba, Nidia, Alba, Laura, Blanca*
