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 $2,800 helped a member to buy threads for weaving.

Chichimuc Group's story

Carmen Rosalinda is married, and she is 43 years old. She completed 4 years of primary school. She has 5 children, of whom 2 are studying. She works as an artisan, weaving traditional skirts. She started this business since she was working with a neighbor. She now has 20 years of experience. She has the support of her husband, who is a day laborer.

A group has been organized to request a loan, which will be used to buy threads of different classes and colors, so that she can increase her production. She hopes in the future to have additional looms and workers. The other group members dedicate themselves to handicrafts and commerce.

In this group: Adelaida Veronica, Vilma Yaneth, Irma Herlinda, Carmen Rosalinda, Rosa Gricelda, Ana Cristina, Rosario*, Alicia Elizabeth
