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).

A loan of $2,025 helped a member to purchase livestock animals for upbringing, breeding and resale.

Buena Vista Ii Chinique Group's story

Santos is 38 years old, and is married with 9 children, three of whom are in school. Santos never had the opportunity to attend school, but she works raising animals and livestock, and taking care of her family and her home. She started her livestock business because her family needed an additional source of income, and she now has 5 years of experience in the trade. Her husband supports her in her business endeavor, and he also works as a farmer.

The solidarity group that Santos helped to organize plans to use the support from this loan to purchase livestock animals for upbringing and breeding, specifically, cows and pigs. Santos hopes, in the future, to open up a meat shop where she can sell high quality animal meats for consumption. The other group members also make a living raising, breeding and selling animals.

In this group: Santos, Marta Canil, Elena, Leona, Sabina, Maria, Maria, Marcelina
