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 $1,175 helped a member buy baby blankets.


Flor De Haba Group's story

The group “Flor de Haba” will begin its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Focal Center. It has six members and is managed by a board of directors of which Natty is President. The members of the group are involved in various businesses, which include: knitting baby clothes, handmade dolls for export, and the sale of bound notebooks.

The loan they are requesting will benefit micro-entrepreneurs of which Natty is a member. She says that this is her first time with Pro Mujer, joining after a friend who is a member of the institution invited her. Currently, she has a business selling baby clothes. She learned the business from a sister-in-law who also sells the products.

The loan she is requesting is to increase her capital (by buying baby blankets) that she will buy from distributor companies and later sell at the markets in El Alto city. This work allows her to generate income to support her family as much as she can, as she is married and has a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said she enjoys the health education they provide.

In the photograph, she is joined by the daughter of Mrs. Genara who is dressed in pink.

In this group: Natty Elisabeth, Genara, Karina, Lenny, Cristina, Jaqueline Celeste
