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 Unidas Group's story

This group is named Mujeres Unidas (United Women) and is from the city of Encarnación. Thanks to their work and sacrifice they have been able to reach their thirteenth loan cycle. They are women who head their families and fight to give their families all that they need for a dignified life.

One of the members of the group is Felicia. She makes a living selling clothing on foot. She always has a good variety and it has been because of this that she has a good clientele and the means to support her family.

Felicia states that she is requesting this loan to buy all types of apparel in order to stock her business and continue offering her customers the variety that they are used to.

In this group: Candelari, Felicia, Perla, Nilda, Sonia, Noelia, Elva, Mercedes, Gladys, Graciela, Alicia*, Tomasa*
