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 $1,550 helped a member to buy animal feed.

Kuña Guapa Group's story

The “Kuña Guapa” communal bank was created when several neighbours from the city of Santaní joined together. The group is made up of 12 very hard-working women who have come together with the goal of getting ahead and eliminating poverty.
All of the members raise and sell barnyard animals such as hens and hogs. They see great opportunities for progress in the Fundacion's program.
Virginia is requesting this loan for the purchase of animal feed. With it, she will be able to feed her animals and continue helping her family with her increased income.

In this group: Virginia, Dora , Idalina , Gladys , María , Mirian , María , Leongina , Baldomera , Pabla , Liz , Nancy *
