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).

Unidas Para Triunfar 2 Group's story

Santa is the coordinator of her group, Unidas para Triunfar 2 (Unite to win). This group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santiago, the second largest city in the Dominican Republic. She is the mother of two children and makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner.

Santa is excited to be taking out her sixth loan with Esperanza and by the opportunity to grow her business. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business. She is running a hot dog cart in front of her house. She sells the food for dinner time.

Santa will use this loan to purchase sausages, bread, soda, ketchup, and other ingredients to make the food taste delicious. She will use the profits to invest in her business and to support her family’s needs. She thanks all of you for your support.

In this group: Santa, Patria, Daisy, Zenona, Cleotilde
